Part 2: The 5 Things You Need To Start Your Podcast

The 5 things you need to start your podcast

Headphones

Please do not record without wearing a pair of headphones.

Always wear headphones when you record your podcast.

Yes, it’s important for sound quality, feedback is a bugger to deal with in post-production. That’s it.

 

 

Before you say it, yes there is a way to do stuff on your phone or iPad but I’m talking about the easiest way and the quickest way for you to feel comfortable and learn.

Editing software you can use on a Mac or PC

So whether you have a PC or Mac. Connect your gear. Make sure your computer is picking up your microphone. You might need to check your settings. Next is DAWS.

 

 

 

You will need to cut out odd noises, false starts and “umms” and “uuhhhs”. This is what your editing software is for. Aka DAWS here are a few of the options:

Audacity

Reaper

Adobe Audition

Ableton

GarageBand

Okay, most of these can be put on a Mac or PC. Don’t let the acronym scare you off (techy speak actually irritates me!!) I always recommend Audacity as a good place to start. It’s a solid platform that you can grow with as your skills get better and you gain confidence.  I will say I am not a fan of Garageband personally, but if that’s what you have and you are comfortable with it. Go for it!!!

 

Do you have any questions? Are you stuck somewhere between idea and execution? Book a discovery call, I’d love to help you move forward.
