5. Press the arrow next to Encoding / High quality
6. Select "Add New"
7. Rename it to "Spoken Word Show"
8. Fill in the following

    - Channels: Mono
    - Bitrate: 192 kbps
    - Sampllerate: 44100 HZ (this is the same as 44.1 KHz)
   - Loudness normalization: - 16 (this will set again in the Libsyn Export)
   
    - Add chapters: do not check
    - Save Configuration: Check
