Episode Info

Episode Info: Podcasting is becoming a very popular medium.  My first introduction to a podcast was when Apple announced it at one of their keynote events. I never knew this medium would grow at a such a constant rate.  Now everyone I know listens to a certain podcast or wants to start one.  I created this episode for anyone who wants to create their own podcast, but doesn't know what they need. Sometimes it can be very complicated and confusing.  I truly hope the information I'm giving you helps out.  These are the 8 things you need to get started. 1.  Topic - What are you going to talk about?  Who is your audience?  What can you continually talk about?  Figuring out a great topic is a strong key to creating a great podcast.  Most people like to come up with the name first, but I believe the name should be inspired by the topic. 2.  Name - The second thing you need is a great name.  This name should give podcast listeners some idea of what your podcast is about.  Write down several names, share them with friends and family to see what they think is best.  But when it's all said and done, the decision is up to you. 3.  Artwork - Getting awesome artwork is another thing you need to start your podcast.  You can get someone to design your artwork.  You can also design it yourself in Photoshop or Canva.  Canva is much easier to use and it's also a great time saver.  Your podcast artwork needs to be 1400 width by 1400 height for it to be accepted to iTunes. 4.  Computer Setup - What I mean by this is you need a computer, microphone, audio interface(in most cases), and headphones.  You can use a Mac or PC for your computer. The audio interface I use is a Apogee Duet 2, but the latest microphones being released plug directly to USB.  Do your research in that area.  Find someone's podcast you really enjoy and ask them what microphone and headphones they are using. 5.  Recording Software - The next thing you need is recording software.  You can pretty much use any software that gives you great quality.  I use Logic Pro X because I also create music.  Here are a few softwares you can check out: Logic Pro X Garageband Protools 6.  Media Hosting - After you create your podcast episodes, you need somewhere to host your media files.  You can use your server, but that can make your website sluggish and slow.  Check out Libsyn, that's the company I use.  They have a starting plan at $5 a month.  You can also use Soundcloud, but I don't k
