When I started podcasting, I read so many different books and watched so many different videos that I ended up confused and overwhelmed to the point that I went out and bought equipment that I still haven’t even used! Odds are, its outdated tech by now too. Don’t tell my wife though. She still thinks I’m going to use it.
Here I will cover the basics as in a clear non-technical, non-jargonal manner just like I would if you and I were having a conversation. My goal is to provide answers for exactly what you will need to get started with a high-quality sounding, low cost and even a FREE podcasting solution.
The first step to starting your own podcast is to come up with an idea and decide on a format for the show. That means you need to come up with a name for your show, figure out what the show is going to be about and if it’s going to be a solo gig or if your best good pal Greg or Marsha from second grade is going to be your co-host. After those decisions have been made, now you and Greg or Marsha will want to decide whether or not you’re going to be interviewing other guests.
How’s that for a cliffhanger? To find out the exciting conclusion of the podventures of Greg or Marsha, tune in to chapter 2!
