Hi, and welcome to How to Podcast.
This guide aims to get you started on the road to becoming a podcasting expert.
My name is Colin Gray, and I've taught podcasting in various forms for a good few years now, most recently at university level in the UK. I have also created a lot of podcasts over the years, mostly around education, sports, and business, so I'll be using all that experience to help you get started on your own podcasting journey.
In this guide I'll take you from a complete beginner's level right up to publishing your first-ever podcast episode. If I've achieved my aim, by the end of this guide you'll be a confident podcaster and happy to go forth to create your own podcasting series.
We'll cover all of the following in detail:
What are podcasts, and how do they work?
All the ways to subscribe to a podcast
What equipment you need to create a podcast
Details on the best kit to buy, down to model numbers
Microphones, digital recorders, headsets, mobile apps
Scripting your podcast
Creating a great recording environment
Editing your podcast in Audacity, including detailed tutorials
How to integrate music to create a professional broadcast
How to publish your podcast
Where to get your podcast listed to gain listeners
Extra chapter: the best podcasting microphones on the market
Whatever your context is, I'm sure podcasts will be a great medium for getting the word out. And, on top of it all, it's great fun.
