Just Jump Into Podcasting – Here’s How

by Jamie Sanford on July 16, 2013

This is one in a series of posts pulled from Chris Brogan’s “100 blog topics I hope YOU write.” (#18)

I have already written a post on podcasting on a budget, but this is the even more basic version. If you aren’t sure about creating a show yet, this should help get you started.

Just try it out.

You will need 3 things.

1. Microphone (most computers, especially laptops, have these built in nowadays)
2. Recording program (Mac users should go with Garageband from what I’ve heard. I use Audacity, which is free and super easy to use.)
3. Headphones/Earbuds (to avoid feedback issues)

And of course, something to talk about.

Open Audacity (or Garageband), press record, and go. I promise that it will be awkward at first, but once you get the hang of it, it isn’t so bad. Good luck!
