How to start a podcast
Everyone has a podcast. In fact, if you do not - are you even a person?
I run a podcast called my millennial money, we are Australia’s number 1 podcast for millennials and their money - or lack thereof!
So you want to start podcasting? Go though these steps before you worry about recording anything!
Before you worry about equipment or recording, I suggest you follow the following steps.
Work out your strategy. Why are you doing it? Who is it for? What is the goal?
Is is just you or more than one person? Is it a interview style (current trend is now at least two people talking to each other regularly)?
Is it short form (5 mins to say 40 mins) or long form? Over an hour?
How many times per week or month are you dropping an episode?
Write down at least 20 episode topics - if you can’t do this you shouldn’t start!
Get some gear and start talking!
You could literally start by recording on your phone, but quality is king - so you will need a decent microphone.
I use a USB mic for when I do recording at home. This would be a good start. It’s an AT2020 USB+. Great sounding mic that is inexpensive!
You can also record on garage band if you have a mac. I use Adobe Audition.
my millennial money
For the my millennial money podcast, I record with the following gear:
1 x Steinberg UR44
4x Shure SM7b
4x Cloud lifter activator (for the Shure mics)
When we are on the road, I use:
4x AKG D5 mics
Where to upload your podcast to?
I use pippa.io to host the my millennial money show. It’s so easy to upload the show to!
