Want to learn how to start a podcast in 2019, and fast? You're in the right place! (note, yes, this video was published in 2018, however the content is still 100% relevant in 2019!) Get the podcast cheat sheet here: https://patflynn.lpages.co/the-podcast-cheat-sheet/ 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! -=-=-= MICROPHONE RECOMMENDATION =-=-=- 🎤 Audiotechnica ATR-2100 USB Microphone (~60 USD) http://geni.us/audiotechnica2100 Want to hear other mic options?

Hey Pat, I was watching through this video and noticed when you go through the pop filters and windscreens, you mixed the two up. The first one is a windscreen and the second is the pop filter. Thanks for your content!

Could you go over having a 2 or even 3 person setup?

What about having two microphones? And how do you do video? How do you splice the video together with the audio and synchronize it? I have so many questions.

So that is how to record audio, but how is it brought online, and is it free, and are certain apps needed to listen to a pod cast, and is the sound quality appropriate for music?

Great video! Quick note, that’s not garage band, that’s logic which costs $200 on the apple store.
Thomas Wargins (19 days ago)
Hey! great video and thanks for all you've done to help people get their shows off the ground. I bought some of your recommended products, including the arm and the shock mount; it seems though the shock mount does not fit onto the arm. I noticed in your video is seems you have a gold adapter for the mount on your arm. What was this called, would like to get one for myself, thanks!

Marcus Trelle (23 days ago)
If a podcast has a lot of followers, do the podcasters usually organize them all to give them five star ratings on iTunes? If you are specific enough you could get thousands of five star ratings in one week. A podcast did this once with the gaming section of podcasts on Digg and they went up from rank 98 to rank 27 in one week, so the same criteria could apply.
Burn'm Project (23 days ago)
Umm how do you create an RSS feed? How do you put it on iTunes. Didn’t give any real substantive advice.
seosaphjarvinen (24 days ago)
Suggested microphone not available in UK. The mic offered is Audio Technica AT2005USB Cardioid Dynamic USB/XLR - is that still good enough?
harter kern (25 days ago)
I would suggest a basic Cubase-version. There you have a stacked recording option which means, you record several takes in a loop and edit them all at once. This is a huge workflow improvement. Also is VERY important, that you get your Metadata of you audio files right. Garageband or Audacity don't do this!

What about headphones? Is there a recommendation for the best type of headphones to use?
JT'sLendingTeam (28 days ago)
Hello friend! Helpful stuff. I would suggest making a new video. Although the content may be relevant, you would eliminate the negative feedback from uninformed viewers while gaining the advantage of having a fresh video the matches the upload date. Ultimately, you would increase the video's view potential (repeat viewers from the 2018 original video) and it would encourage you to find more current solutions during the research process of preproduction. I hope the advice helps, thanks again for the information.

John Glynn (1 month ago)
The microphone does not sit well in the shockmount and if pointed downwards the microphone falls out. Any suggestions
Ryan Lavine (1 month ago)
same happened to me - you need to purchase a shockmount specifically designed for the size of the mic you bought.

What if i have multiple mics and only one PC or laptop to Plug in ?
wobblebomb (8 days ago)
On a Mac, and I bet there is a way to do this on pc, if you plug in two usb mics, you can create an aggregate audio device and record on two tracks simultaneously on GarageBand. Again, I only know Mac but there are great videos and online tutorials on how to do this without an external mixer

Erica Nelson (1 month ago)
Hey! So I ordered all the materials you stated, however I can’t seem to attach the shock mount to the boom arm. What adapter did you use to connect? I see in the video there was a piece that was attached. The shock mount you suggested did not come with that piece. Please help out as I’m ready to start and get out of my comfort zone! Thanks for videos! I subscribed and it has helped a lot!
Erica Nelson (1 month ago)
Pat Flynn Thanks Pat! I’m having difficulty locating this particular piece 😩. Is it in the tripod stand?
Pat Flynn (1 month ago)
Hey Erica, there should be an adapter piece that's on the mic stand that came with the microphone that you may have to remove with a coin or something that could then screw into the shock mount.
Scott Schechter (1 month ago)
Hey Pat. Quick question for you. If I am using 5 mics for a podcast on a Mac. Do you suggest a USB hub? If so, which one do you suggest?
Stephanie Ramirez (1 month ago)

Are you recording direct to your computer or do you use a camera? I have a nice Sony camera but there is no external mic jack, so I'm wondering what is the best option. I want to record voice and music. Thanks
flybob13 (1 month ago)
+OG-K Ok, recording to computer but using a camera ? Can computers do that ? I'm old and not to savvy about computers. But thanks for the reply. Guess I need to do more research.
OG-K (1 month ago)
Recording directly to computer. He explained that within the first two minutes of the video when discussing microphones. Right after that he demonstrated plugging into computer.

What if you have more than one host? Will I need a mixer for that?
Activate LA (1 month ago)
I recommend a small mixer to have more control with the volume on each michrophone, better sound. All you will need is a small interface from the mixer to you computer. We have up to 6 mic on our youtube show :)

How does having my YouTube RSS feed help me? Will YouTube hit me for duplicate content if I load the audio from my podcast to YouTube which is exactly the same is my video? Will I get him for duplicate content if I use the audio from my video for my podcast?

Pat Flynn. Just curious. What mic set up are you using in this video? Quality is so clean.

I don't like being infront of a camera, so i was encouraged to do a podcast instead. I'm more effective in teaching face-to-face, but I'm here because I'm willing to learn. One my biggest flaws, I'M CHEAP, looking at the cost is pretty daunting for me too. I need all the help I can get.

What about on an iPhone 📱
Pat Flynn (1 month ago)
It is possible to create a podcast on your phone, yes. But it's not going to sound the best, and if you want to create something long term that will compete with other high quality podcasts out there, spending a little bit of money (not a lot) beyond your phone will go a long way.

Audio Drama is unique. There’s no other book like it. First it’s aimed at the vast audience for audio drama, whether in the form of traditional radio plays or as podcasts.  For them, Audio Drama provides the opportunity to see how ten literary classics were dramatised for radio, and to recreate the performances for themselves as they read. Secondly, it’s for all those podcast producers who are keen to exercise their imagination and technical skills by producing audio drama for their followers. These ten scripts provide the raw material from which podcasters can craft their own drama productions. The works on which they are based are literary classics and are in the public domain. The audio dramatisations – all of which have been, or are about to be, produced and broadcast either by the BBC or across the USA – are offered to the global community of podcasters with no strings attached. An experienced dramatist and abridger, with more than 50 BBC radio dramatisations under his belt, Neville Teller not only presents 10 of his scripts, but also explains something of how a radio drama script is crafted. Audio Drama fills a niche that will appeal on both sides of the pond, and more widely in the whole English-speaking world. https://www.troubador.co.uk/bookshop/media-the-arts/audio-drama/
