2. Preview your audio
3. Associate an image with the file if you'd like
4. Update the title (the name of the episode).
5. Check if you want the file to be available on your site search. If the box next to Indexable is selected, the audio file can appear in relevant search results.
Left unchecked, the audio file will not appear in search results.
6. Save changes or delete file.
Under the advanced tab:
1. Give this episode a description
2. Associate with topics, site placement, classifications if you'd like.
