Glow blogs provide an easy way to post to the web. You can post text, audio & video. The only limit is the upload file size which is limited to 5mbs. This is fine for audio but you need to keep video short and small. There is a way around this. You can have a podcast set up on the NLC Podcast server where is is very easy to post audio and video file of up to 50mb.
