We’ve discussed that you can basically start recording your podcast with just a computer and USB microphone. Yet, what should you do once you plug the USB microphone into the computer?
This is where the software tools will do their job.
Basically, you’ll need the help of software solutions in three key areas:
- Record: recording your show. Digitizing the audio data from your microphone to a distributable format.
- Edit: edit the recorded data so it becomes a coherent, presentable podcast episode.
- Hosting: distributing the recorded and edited show to various podcast channels.
With TalkShoe as an all-in-one podcasting solution, you get all three functions in a single software, so you don’t have to worry about moving between different tools and importing or exporting files, which is often a hassle.
A common misconception when discussing how to start a podcast is that we upload the podcast directly to channels like Spotify or iTunes, but that isn’t actually the case. Instead, we’ll need a hosting service to host the audio files. The hosting service will then distribute the podcast to relevant channels.
TalkShoe is also a comprehensive podcast hosting service so you can record, edit, and publish your shows in a single dashboard.
