Show Notes

In this episode, I am going to provide a little "behind the scenes" view of the podcast. Quite a few listeners have been asking what it took to get the show running and what it takes every week to get each episode produced. I thought I would share some key points in this short episode. By no means is this a complete guide but hopefully, it will give you an idea of what is involved. 

Key Takeaways

  • You'll need to choose a podcast platform to host your podcast on. This platform then distributes your podcast to all the popular listening platforms. I considered Soundcloud, Buzzsprout, and Audioboom, choosing Buzzsprout
  • You'll need a decent microphone. I chose the Marantz Pod Pack 1 that included the condenser microphone, the cable, and boom arm
  • You'll need some software to produce the podcast. I use GarageBand on Mac OS. Audacity is also an option for both Mac and Windows computers
  • There are some optional extras that I use like Canva for producing promotional artwork and Buffer for scheduling social media posts


Resources Mentioned
These are the resources I spoke about in the episode:

  • Soundcloud hosting platform
  • Audioboom hosting platform
  • Buzzsprout hosting platform. If you sign-up to a paid plan using this link you will receive a $20 Amazon gift card (after paying for the platform for at least two months) and I will receive a small commission (at no cost to you) that helps me run the podcast
  • The Marantz Pod Pack 1 microphone
  • The Buzzsprout blog
  • Canva for creating the social media artwork
  • https://buffer.com/Buffer to schedule the social media posts
