How to Start Your Own Podcast (Ep. 133)

The College Info Geek PodcastPodcasting, it seems, has been undergoing a bit of a Renaissance in the past couple of years.

Now that there are default podcast apps on both Android and iOS, more people than ever are listening and subscribing to podcasts. And, with easier access to quality equipment and editing software, it seems like everyone is starting their own. Even your grandma probably has a podcast.

So why shouldn’t you?

In this week’s episode, Martin and I will be going over the entire process of starting a podcast, step by step.

We’ll talk about:

  • Why you might want to start a podcast
  • How to choose a show format and topic
  • Equipment and editing software recommendations – what we use, as well as entry-level picks
  • How to edit your episode
  • Where to host your podcast files
  • How to get your show listed in iTunes
  • Tips for marketing your show and having a successful launch

Even though this is ostensibly a college/education show, you guys have been surprisingly vocal in requesting that we cover this topic ever since the episode on how to start a blog went live.

I suppose everyone’s curious about how the sausage is made.
