Creating a Podcast: It's really not that scary!
Starting a podcast was always something I wanted to do as I believe it is a wonderful medium to convey conversation and information in a fun and entertaining way. However it sounded too scary and too complicated.
Then I looked into it and it really isn't. Here is a simple step-by-step guide to starting a podcast:
1. Get the Equipment ready - all you need is a computer and a microphone which plugs into the USB port of your computer - SIMPLE!
2. Sign up to Anchor (www.anchor.fm) - hit record on the dashbord and record your audio --> add your audio to an episode and publish the episode. Anchor then publishes your podcast to all good podcast streaming platforms. This is completely FREE!
3. Optional: Prior to publishing your episode I have found it beneficial to run the audio through Auphonic to improve sound quality. Wave Pad is also an easy to use software that helps with trimming audio if needed.
So there you go, get out and share your knowledge!
