I wish I could tell you that starting a podcast is as easy as pressing “record”. Unfortunately, there’s a hell of a lot more that goes into it than that. The good news is that the sooner you shake out your audio prep strategies, the easier recording gets.
Welcome to Should I Start A Podcast.
I’m Ronsley Vaz. Each week you’ll hear me, and a star-studded guest lineup, dig deep into the podcasting process. We’ll bring you tactics, tips, and tricks to use in your own podcasting journey. We’ll teach you how to build an audience. And we’ll show you how to keep them coming back, show after show.
So if you want to start a podcast, or expand your current audience, this is the show for you.
A little prep goes a long way. A lot of prep goes even further.
If you’ve got a podcast in the works, you’re probably anxious to launch. I get it. But here’s the thing, you’ve got to do the work first. And not just for the launch. It’s essential to understand the systems that need to be in place before you record, every time you record. I’m not just talking about the technical stuff here, although that is a major part of it. I’m talking about rituals, checklists, templates, and backup plans.
This episode is chock-full of tactical information to prepare you for audio prep. I’m talking a laundry list of useful tips. I even lay them out step by step. We go over DAW setup, interview prep, pre-recording checklists, ID3 tagging, plugins and SO much more. So if you want to be super prepared and set yourself up with rewarding habits, grab a pen and paper and listen carefully.
