guarantee that I won't.

I am thinking that this podcast will be audio only, but we could set
up a video podcast as well. 

There are some naming and metadata conventions I hope we can adhere
to, but of course I do not have them handy now.

I do not think you will need different credentials to upload. Just tag
your posts with "podcast" and "kwlug". The archive.org terms of
service prohibit organizations from sharing a login. 

Eventually there might be a specific channel on archive.org to which
we will post our stuff. But I do not think that is worth pursuing
until/unless we get a proper podcast workflow in place, and publish
several episodes, and decide that it is still worth publishing a
podcast for fewer than two subscribers.
