Want to learn how to start a podcast in 2019, and fast? You're in the right place! 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?

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.

How do you deal with boomy or reflective rooms? Do you use sound proofing material on the walls or use something that goes on a stand like a reflection filter?

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

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.

Austin Doble (27 days ago)
so say you wanted to add some music to your podcast but its licensed copyrighted music? if you say in your podcast the name of the song and give credit to the artist are you legally protected?
John Marston (17 days ago)
If you are using your podcast as a hobby then I believe so, if you make money with your show I believe you have to pay regardless

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.

Hey, while I was exporting it the software told me to download LAME. Do you know if its okay to do? Will it have anything crazy that can cause viruses?
Pat Flynn (1 month ago)
Audacity, right? Yes LAME (which is a terrible name) allows you to export a Audacity file as an MP3. Download it from the official site and you shouldn't have anything to worry about. Good luck!
