Recording equipment with guest in person:
2 Shure PG48 microphones and 2 XLR male to female microphone cables
Recording equipment with guest via Zoom:
You can record direct from zoom and it will give you an audio and video recording, but only 1 track on the audio.
I also use a program called Audio Hijack to get both tracks. (I select new session and then “Voice chat” rather than “podcast”, but you can play around and see what works best for you.)
A program called Audacity
Another program called Levelator to “level out” out person 1 and person 2 or caller 1 and caller 2.
(Really easy to use, literally drag and drop files into it, and it exports the file sounding “leveled”.
Open a Libsyn account.
You can go with the $5 a month play if you are doing 1-2 episode a month.
$15 a month for weekly episodes. (I’ve published as many as 6 a month and never used all the space you get with $15 a month)
Open an Itunes account
There are tons more players besides Itunes, but I suggest you also open a Spotify account and Google Podcast account for starters.
If you do everything right inside of Libsyn, you will only have to hit publish once per episode moving forward. As Libsyn will point your episode to the other players for you.
Podcast Community Facebook Group – A great place to get lots of technical questions answered.
