Creating your podcast can be done on a PC or a Mac. Whichever you use you can get it done. I use a Mac and will be suggesting software that I use on my machine but I will try to offer you some good PC alternatives. Yesterday I told you that if you have the Apple earbuds that is all you need. If however you do have a Mic lying around, please find a set of headphones.⠀
All of these pieces will fit together and make your podcast journey so much easier. Please remember, I am NOT saying go out and buy all this requirement. I want you to use what you have.⠀
Hi, it has been a while, have you been following on IG? You can catch me there as well. This is the first of a set of post that will lay out the pod process for you. This week we will cover equipment and next week the podcast parts and types. What equipment do you need? Will people listen? Do I need to spend $300 on a mic?
These are the types of I will be answering. What questions do you need answered? Email me or put your question below. I will be starting at square one and laying it out for you.
A discovery call from a lady in my network showed me there is still a lot of confusion and mis-information around podcasting.
What you need to do, the process, the equipment, the time and the cost. So I think it would be cool to lay it out for you here and on IG and FB. For today the first piece of equipment you need is a microphone. Before you rush out and get the priciest mic you can find. WAIT!! The best piece of kit to start with is the Apple earbuds. They are fab for what they do. Please trust me on this. If you just want to try out the idea before committing get the Apple earbuds.
If you really want a great microphone that you can take anywhere and get great sound each time I love the Audio – Technica ATR 2100.
The answer is both. The different formats appeal to different people. So if you love FB live go for it. When you are done save the video. Strip the audio, make a few relevant edits ( you don’t need the parts where FB live crashed for a minute or where you explained for the 4th time that you will answer questions at the end). If you are careful with your recording quality for the video the audio should be fine for you to use for a podcast. If it needs some tweaking send it to an editor.
Now you have satisfied your audio learners and your visual learners.
