What is a podcast?
A podcast is a digital audio broadcast that is made available to download on the internet or to a mobile device. Podcasts are usually created in a series of episodes, although there isn’t a pre-determined format for how you wish to create your podcasts.
Podcasts are easy and cheap to produce, and with their popularity always growing, there has never been a better time to get involved. As there is no need to rely on radio stations, you have the creative freedom to talk about anything you want.
How do I record a podcast?
All you need to get started recording your podcast is a computer with a USB microphone and access to the internet. If you are planning to record with guests, however, a digital recorder will be ideal.
Once you’ve recorded your first episode, you will want to edit and improve it before publishing. Editing your show can help to smooth out any rough edges that may be in your first recording, as well as help to improve your overall show quality. The Zoom H4n and RODECaster Pro II are great options to get the right podcast recording set-up.
