If you love to listen to podcasts, there’s a good chance you’ve planned starting your own. You might not have the fancy equipment, or a paid host service account—you might not have the slightest idea of anything at all!
Fortunately, you’re not alone. There’re are plenty of other people, just like you who wish to do the same but have little to no idea where to start.
We’ve put together a short and simple guide that answers all your podcast related questions:
What Equipment To Use?
Guess what? If you’re reading this, you have all the equipment needed to get started. You need a recording device—which you have in the form of your smartphone or laptop mic and you also have access to the internet.
While this isn’t studio level recording equipment (which you don’t need either), your listeners will have no trouble understanding what you say. Moreover, you can make edits in the post production phase later.
What Software To Use?
You can download free, light audio editing software to make simple edits. Free software like Audacity will do the job just fine.
What Music Do I Use To Introduce A Podcast?
While every podcast starts with some music and there’s the transition music as well, using your favorite soundtrack from your favorite artist could translate into big copyright trouble. Therefore, it’s typically a bad idea to use copyrighted sound in your podcasts without a written permission from the owner of the sound. Thankfully, there are plenty of royalty free tracks and sounds you can use.
