question about podcasting

dear world at large,

it seems that the university is unable to host audio files of lectures so that students with timetable clashes can have podcasts, so i will be arranging the hosting myself. Can somebody recommend a cheap and reliable hosting service for me to use? There won't be a lot of downloads. It would be really good if someone could point me to a hosting service that was not just raw server space but already set up in some fashion to make podcasting simple (ie I just upload the mp3 somehwere and the feed is automatically created...or something...you can tell I know a lot about this can't you.) I seem to have an unusually large number of people enrolling who can't make it to the lecture time and I'm very reluctant to turn them away.

iTunes has this facility at iTunesU. http://www.apple.com/education/itunesu_mobilelearning/faculty.html There is help with how to upload etc. But I'd also check to make sure the University doesn't have a policy preventing you putting your lecture material in a public place. I think you can make it private and only available to your students if it does.
