228. The Right Recording Set-Up

So you’ve decided to start a podcast. In a perfect world, we’d all be able to afford the top-notch gear and sit in our recording studios to record an episode. But sadly, that’s just not the case for most of us. So what are our other options?

Welcome to Should I Start A Podcast

Each week Ronsley Vaz, with the help of a star-studded entrepreneurial guest lineup, explores why you should start a podcast and build an audience, and how to keep them hungry for more. If you’re thinking about starting a podcast, or simply finding a better way to get your message out to your audience, then this is the podcast for you.

This episode features a very special snippet from our We Are Podcast 6-week Launch Accelerator Course. Although this intensive program is usually only available to registered attendees of WAP, we decided this information was too valuable to keep to ourselves.

This quick little clip is all about the technical stuff you should think about before recording your first episode. First off, Ronsley answers the most frequent question he hears: “What mic do I need?” Then he gets into what all the factors that affect the answer.

Quote: Yes, your audio quality is super important. But you’ve got to understand what the points of failure are.

This is an excellent intro to the audio do’s and don’t for newbie podcasters. We don’t get too technical here, just some simple things to think about. Ronsley wants to make the process as simple as possible for you. The important thing is to get started on your podcast. And you don’t have to have a Dr Dre-esque studio to do it.

Other great info in this episode:
  • What mic should you buy?
  • Why you need more than a webcam mic
  • What makes a uni-directional mic different?
  • The responsibility of a podcaster
  • Squadcast and why it’s so cool
