UPDATE: I no longer recommend the use of FeedBurner. It’s old tech that easily breaks and is no longer necessary IMO. To create a valid, podcast ready RSS feed, my recommendation is to use Libsyn.com or host with blurry.com and use the PowerPress plugin with WordPress. If for some reason you find yourself having to use FeedBurner, maybe you are using WordPress.com for your website, then this tutorial will help with that.
