How We Do It: Self-Hosting a Podcast with Podtrificus Totalus

As a companion piece to my prior post on how we prepare for, record, and edit my Harry Potter podcast Podtrificus Totalus, I wanted to provide a write up on how we host and distribute the show too. My hope is that this will be helpful to a beginner looking to go live with their show or to someone looking to get away from the “big” podcast hosts like Libsyn, Blubrry, Podbean, etc. Instead, I’ll describe a self-hosted approach that combines WordPress, PowerPress, Amazon S3, and S3Stat.
