Podcasting Overview

If you want to do all or part of your work in the form of podcasting, here are some tools and information to support that goal:

Podcasting tools are vast and varied. Two that you can use free are Soundtrap and Descript. You can also just use Zoom BUT you need to make the settings be for separate audio tracks.

If you’ve never done a podcast before, you’ll need to do the podcast script first. Copy the box note and make it work for your ideas.

Before you do the actual recording, be sure to practice — having your thoughts written out in an outline with quotes or specifics ready to go is important to maintain confidence, BUT you have to also be sound as though it is a conversation. Think of doing a debate or an extemporaneous speech. Practice but don’t memorize or read unless it is a quote.
