Garageband 3 --> iTunes, compression settings?

Hi, I'm recording a podcast for www.podiobooks.com and they have very specific specs requirements.

I'm brand new to Garageband and 'til now have only used iTunes as a player.

Could somebody walk me through creating these compression specs:

BIT RATE: 64kbps
SAMPLE RATE: 44100 Hz
CHANNEL: Joint Stereo

I'm already recording in stereo (how do I make sure it's "joint" though)?

I'm not sure if I'm supposed to set these specs in GarageBand or in iTunes once I've exported.

A step by step guide would be awesome (assume I've already recorded and edited). Thanks!

Apple has this support page:

It might help you.

Thanks, but I've been over Apple's support pages. I can't find the specific info I'm looking for.

Can anyone else walk me through?

Here's a few more links that might help:

First link is a bit outdated though (Monday, March 29 2004)

Hmmm. I'll investigate that second one. I've never ventured into using the automator for anything.

But more importantly, I've discovered that I can set the specs in iTunes by setting my AAC preferences accordingly and then converting the file to AAC.

If there's a better way to do this, or anyone knows how to set compression rates in iTunes, please let me know!

And thanks for your help Dolawren.

Actually, I just skimmed that Automator example. It looks like it's exactly what I need! Thanks!
