Step 9 (optional): Open the file in iTunes

If you now double-click the file you created it should launch iTunes and then begin playing your podcast. This is a convenient way of verifying that you properly created your podcast.

Beyond that, this also lets you convert your file to the popular "MP3" format. This step varies depending on your version of iTunes, but in iTunes 7.3 it is as simple as selecting your recording, choosing the Advanced menu, then clicking the "Convert Selection to MP3" menu item.
