"Over 100 million Americans commute to work on their own in a car every day," Lori said. "All those people are potential podcast listeners.
"Their only other option is to listen to the radio, and who wants to do that when podcasts mean you can choose what you listen to and when?
"What's more, smartphones and tablets make it easier than ever to subscribe to podcasts.

In the guide, readers are given advice on what attracts potential listeners to try out a podcast. Additionally, it includes details of podcasting directories and apps that DIY broadcasters can submit their podcast to.
"iTunes is the grand-daddy of the podcasting world, but it's not the only way people discover new podcasts," Lori said. "To reach the widest possible audience, you must submit your podcast feed to as many directories as possible."
