Podcast Essentials

By Paul Santiago

Podcasting has been around for the longest time but honestly, it feels like it’s been fairly new since people only jumped on the bandwagon in the last 5 years. 

That’s your advantage!

The fact that there is still a chance for you to conquer a niche, there’s not reason why you shouldn’t do it!

The reason why podcasting is so attractive is because it’s radio but on your own terms. You are the host, producer, tech guy and booking agent all rolled into one.

If you’re trying it out for the first time, I put together the essentials of what I think you should start out with.

Here is the setup that I’d recommend when it comes to audio only podcasting.
