Episode-57- How I Record, Edit and Publish Podcasts

Filed under: Podcast — Tags: , , , — JackSpirko @ 5:43 pm

I have just been getting a ton of “how do I” style questions around podcasting lately.  I am going to do the best I can with these as explaining technical mechanics on an audio show isn’t the easiest thing to do, the key is the resources and the concepts.  Trust me a Youtube or Google search will review the how today of just about anything if you know what you are looking for.   Hence today I will focus mostly on the what and the why and trust that the motivated individual will find the how.  I will also of course absolutely answer any questions below and perhaps do another episode based on follow up questions to this one.

Resources mentioned today…

  • My MP3 Recorder I use for FMwJ
  • Samson C01U Condenser Microphone – what I use for desktop recording
  • Audacity – Free program I use for recording
  • Skype – What I use to conduct interviews
  • Pamela – How I record Skpe Interviews
  • Levelator – How I level the volume of multi person podcasts with big differentials.  Note levelator only works with dot wav files so you will have to convert back to a mp3 before publishing, it is worth the extra step and besides the computer is the one doing the work.
  • PodPress – It is best just to search for it in “Add New” under plugins in WordPress
  • FeedBurner – For optimized feeds
  • Smart FTP – FTP Program I personally use, most of them are fine though.
