    I also wanna add my few points. 

    To add mid-rolls and ad break points to your podcast, you can follow these general steps:

    1. Plan your podcast structure: Determine the ideal places within your podcast episode where you want to insert mid-rolls and ad break points. Consider natural breaks in the conversation or at specific timestamps.

    2. Choose an ad placement strategy: Decide whether you want to have fixed ad placements at specific timestamps or if you prefer dynamic ad placements based on the length of your content. Dynamic ad placements allow for flexibility and easier management.

    3. Identify ad spots: Once you've decided on the strategy, mark the specific points in your podcast episode where you want to insert ads. You can make note of these spots either by using timestamps or by adding placeholders in your script.

    4. Record ad breaks: Prepare ad scripts or use pre-recorded ads from sponsors. When recording your podcast episode, leave blank spaces or placeholders where the ads will be inserted. You can either record the ads yourself or collaborate with sponsors or advertisers to provide the audio files.

    5. Edit your podcast: Use audio editing software to add the ad recordings or placeholder segments to your podcast episode. Popular audio editing tools include Audacity, Adobe Audition, GarageBand, and Hindenburg Journalist.

    6. Fine-tune transitions: Ensure smooth transitions between your main content and the ad breaks. Use fades, crossfades, or other audio editing techniques to make the transitions seamless, solve noise solutions, and prevent jarring interruptions for your listeners.

    7. Export the final episode: After editing, export your podcast episode as a finished audio file. Make sure to save a backup of the raw, unedited file in case you need to make future modifications.

    8. Distribute your podcast: Upload the final episode to your podcast hosting platform or podcast service provider. Platforms such as Libsyn, Podbean, Anchor, and Buzzsprout allow you to upload your episodes and manage ad placements.

    9. Configure ad insertion settings: Depending on your podcast hosting platform, you may have specific settings or options to configure ad insertion. Follow the platform's instructions to set up mid-roll ad placements or to integrate with an ad network for dynamic ad insertions.

    10. Monitor ad performance: Keep track of the performance and effectiveness of your ads. Consider metrics such as click-through rates, engagement, and feedback from your audience to evaluate the success of your ad placements.

    Remember to comply with any relevant advertising regulations or guidelines in your region and disclose sponsored content to your audience transparently.
