Email List Management

Your podcast will be 10x more effective when combined with an email list. For this, I recommend ConvertKit.

Web Hosting

Keep it simple. You're a podcaster, not a webmaster. Because of this, I recommend a simple and easy "website builder" like Wix.

Podcasting Equipment


Your Microphone (And Other Hardware)

The best thing you can do to improve the audio quality of your podcast is use a good microphone.

At only around $70, the ATR-2100 by Audio-Technica is by far the most flexible and best-value mic in podcasting. It plugs directly into a computer via USB or into a mixer via XLR, so it can grow with you as your podcast grows.

Listen to the ATR-2100 here.

My primary podcasting microphone, also by Audio-Technica, is the BP40. I use a Mackie 1202VLZ4 mixer and a dbx 286s processor. You can hook everything up to your computer using a Focusrite 2i2 interface.

For a remote recording solution, I recommend the GLS 58 microphone and Zoom H4N recorder.

Software

Audacity is free and easy-to-use recording software that works great for most podcasts.

Run the file you create through Auphonic to make it sound better and compress it to make it easier for listeners to download.
