I do podcasts from my own site not using anything like feedburner or Libsyn. 
You can do this by writing your own xml file.

I learned to do this from the info in the how to section at

Just go to the info for podcasters, and the tutorials should be under that. 
I'm sure there are other resources, but I found this one to be simple and 
straight-forward for a layperson like me.

Please let me know if you have any questions on writing your feed, and I'll 
be happy to try and help.
