Starting a podcast is not as difficult as it seems. In fact, you only need three main essentials: a quality microphone, good headphones, and the proper recording software. Before opening your wallet to purchase this equipment, you should first define your goals as a podcaster. Some people do it for fun, while others are strictly committed to their podcast. The type of podcaster you want to be may even determine the quality of equipment that you purchase, so determine your “why” before the “how.”
- Podcasts don’t need to be done in a studio necessarily, you just need a mic, headphones, and recording equipment.
- Before you start researching the equipment, you have to asses what you are podcasting for, a hobby, or to make money.
- If you are looking to do a podcast, just start doing it and then you will decide what you need to make changes.
“The beautiful thing about a podcast is you can do it anywhere.”
