        1. 64Kbps is AM radio quality; good for talk only
        2. 96Kbps is FM radio quality; good for talk and some music like bumper music
        3. 128Kbps is CD quality; good for recording music
        4. 192Kbps is high quality and probably not necessary for a podcast
    3. Use either 22.05kHz or 44.1kHz (CD quality)
