Do you want to start a podcast and don’t know where to begin?
I’m an active Podcaster and I asked the very same question when I wanted to start. I’ve been in the Internet marketing space since 1995. Setting up a Podcast is one of the most easiest things I have done.
First thing I would do would be to buy a high-quality recording device. The one I got was a bit of an overkill, but still very affordable. My recommendation is the ‘ZOOM H6 Handy Recorder‘ they range from NZ$500-$700 as it all depends on where you shop, make sure you get a genuine one from one of their approved suppliers.
Six interchangeable input capsules make the ZOOM H6 the ultimate recorder for film, video, podcast and music. Its advanced preamps make it the best-sounding one, too. Unmatched abilities. Award-winning quality.
You may not need any additional microphones with the ZOOM H6, however if you do an ideal studio microphone would be the Audio-Technica BP40 broadcast vocal microphone offers a rich, natural, condenser-like sound from a large-diaphragm dynamic design. I also use the Blue Yeti Pro USB Microphone because I wanted a mike where I can record multiple people in a room at the same time, the Yeti Pro provides three custom condenser capsules with four distinct recording patterns and you need that to record multiple people.
Not a necessity, however it’s good to have some audio editing software, As I like to bookend my podcast with an intro and outro. I have been using Camtasia you can use it to get the best sound out of your recordings. Record studio-quality podcasts from anywhere using Squadcast you can record remotely, simplify editing and create engaging podcasts with an intuitive platform that allows you to connect with anyone, anywhere.
Next, you need a podcast hosting service. I joined a Podcasting Facebook group that had over 26,000 members, and I asked the person who ran the group what one he would recommend, and he gave me a link to Buzzsprout.
The real exciting thing for me was that I wanted my podcast to appear in Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, and more.
