A while back, I published the most popular podcasting tutorial on YouTube, and in this video I wanted to make sure you have all of the latest and greatest information so that you can get your podcast setup the right way.
Podcasting has changed my life! It's helped me build a huge audience, develop a deeper relationship with my subscribers and customers, make more money, and most importantly make a bigger impact in the world.
All you need to do now is take action and learn how to start a podcast!
In this particular video, I'll be highlighting the equipment and software you need to get started - all without breaking the bank. My goal is to take away all of the excuses you have that are holding you back from starting your podcast. Trust me, because it took me forever to start my podcast back in July of 2010.
Things have changed since then (hint: it's A LOT easier to start a podcast today than it was before), and so make sure you watch through this video about equipment and software, and then subscribe so you don't miss the other two videos in this tutorial series!

Thanks for watching the updated podcasting tutorial! Here's a link to the cheat sheet mentioned in this video with the checklist and some helpful tips as you start: https://patflynn.lpages.co/the-podcast-cheat-sheet/
Me and my mates want to make a funny pod where we discuss wonders of science and conspiracy theories aswell as our lives and interact with fans - the main aim is be as funny as you are in the pub(Ricky Gervais)-we aren’t old enough to go to the pub but you get the point- what’s the best way to start off using things we already own such as phones/gaming headsets etc
Hi Pat - thank you for sharing this - I have been listening to your podcasts for some time as I drive between my tearoom locations and find them really inspiring. So much so I want to create my own podcast and came across this video when I started to look in to how to get started. Just wanted to say a BIG thank you for all you are doing to help small business.
Thanks for creating this for a novice like me. I have been thinking of starting a podcast but can get a little overwhelmed researching how to get started. You have made this so much easier for me so thank you!
yup! here's a super cheap option: https://www.amazon.com/Charcoal-soundproofing-insulation-soundproof-dampening/dp/B07DFS4ZVJ/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?crid=2NFBC5OC5HTMW&keywords=sound+proof+padding&qid=1549996848&s=gateway&sprefix=sound%2Caps%2C201&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1
Thanks for this Pat! Quick question... how do you get good audio when you're interviewing someone who isn't on-site? Do you record a phone call or use a service like zoom? Do you ship them a high quality mic to use? Thanks for any input!!!
I just found your channel. Your podcast cheat sheet really helped me to create a focus. I have a question about how Podcast Servers deliver audio. My content will consist of music dubbed from vinyl and I want the highest playback sample and bit rate as possible in order to come as close to an analog sound as possible. Do the servers allow for playback of .wav files? I want to avoid compressing down to MP3 because a lot of subtle audio data is removed in this process. What's the highest MP3 bit rate allowed because if I had to go with MP3, there's better resolution at 320Kb's. I've been a professional recording engineer in Radio, TV and Film for over 30 years. I've never listened to podcasts so where is s good place to listen? Thanks.
Excellent information. I'll look at your videos to see if you cover this: I'm planning to do a podcast talking live with two other people who are in other locations. How best to get their audio into my Garage Band or Audacity?
Really helpful and simple :D
Starting up a podcast with my friend soon (we run a newspaper on the Minecraft server we both are part of, and wanted to add a auditory element for people that prefer audible reading to visual reading) this is going to greatly help us both out :)
I love the, "All you need is a USB connection to your computer", and then it shows a shot of the ridiculous dongle Apple makes you use for its latest laptops. Oh man. Kind of miss the days when a USB connection wasn't so difficult.
Hello! Thank you. I have a problem with my S sounds... they are either too sharp/loud or are too shsh. What do you recommend for that? Will The wind shield be good for that?or is something else better?
I love this edgy look! I was so excited that her hair, even as short as it is now, was still able to be put into the fun and trendy dutch pigtail braids! Instead of braiding to the ends, I ended them in close together pigtails at the nape of her neck. After I finished braiding, I tugged on the outsides of the braid gently to loosen them and make them a little messy and fun! Since she doesn’t have enough hair to tie around the elastics, I made sure to use elastics that matched her hair so they blend in as much as possible. You could also cover them with clips or bows! A view from the back of her Dutch pigtail braids! A great braid for short hair is a micro accent braid! My biggest tip for braiding short hair would be to add in small slices of hair rather than big ones. I did a small (micro) braid along a slightly curved deep part for anther cute and edgy look! You could also do another one next to it if you wanted a little more to the look, but I really liked how simple this one was. You can see how the part curves a little better from this view of the back. I ended the braid close to the head with an elastic that matched her hair. For our fourth style, we did a 3/4 french braid! Super simple but also super cute! You could do any type braid! It would also look cute using a Dutch braid or a fishtail braid! I loved the side view of this braid! I will for sure be doing this one next time she goes to gymnastics or swimming, whichever comes first! Our last braid is two four dutch lace braids into two loops in the back. Start off by parting the hair down the middle. On each side of the part, do a dutch lace braid, adding hair in from only the section closest to the part as you braid. Tie the braids together in the back with a small elastic and before you pull the hair all the way through to make a ponytail, leave it in a cute little loop! If the hair is a little bit longer, you could do a tiny bun. Repeat this directly under the braid you just did so you have two rows and two loops.
We will have to be coming up with lots more short hair braids in the future, so be sure to give us a follow over at our newly redesigned blog Abella’s Braids to see more as we do them!
Thanks for reading! See you again this time next month!
love these ideas! My daughter recently cut about 8 inches off her hair and is loving her shorter hair, but I’ve mostly been at a loss of what to do with it! Thanks!
Abella has been begging me for at least a year, probably closer to two years, to cut her hair. I posted a photo on Instagram with a question in the caption. “Abella has been begging me to cut her hair short, do you think I should let her do it?” Almost everyone said “YES!” So thanks to all of the good advice from my followers, we did it…and we haven’t regretted it for a second! I think she looks so cute and it really fits her personality! It’s for sure a lot harder to come up with braids but it’s pushed me to step out of my comfort zone! We wanted to show you that even if you have short hair, there are lots of cute braids you can still do!
This first braid (above) is three ladder braids. Start out with a part deep to one side. On the side with less hair, start out by doing a waterfall braid along the part. Under that one, do another waterfall braid, but incorporate the waterfall pieces from the one above it as you braid. Under that one, do a french braid. Incorporate the waterfall pieces from the second braid as you go. We braided each one to the ends and used elastics that matched her hair to tie them off.
