Podcasting In 2021
All the tools you need to get started with podcasting in 2021.
I started a podcast called Gravitas WINS recently. So far released 12 episodes.
From the first episode, I’ve iterated on almost everything - recording techniques, tools, time of release …
In this post, I list all the tools I use for podcasting.
Planning In Obsidian
All planning happens in Obsidian.
- topics to create
- episode script
- podcast checklist
Obsidian is my digital brain. Everything goes there.
If I’ve to edit on mobile, I use 1Writer.
Once content is ready, I read it aloud once or twice.
- Are there “big” words that I could mispronounce?
- Do I sound like talking to a friend or as corporate mumbo jumbo?
- Is the speaking flow naturally from start to end?
I am now ready to record the episode.
Recording & Edit In GarageBand
Just before I record, I do some facial and voice exercises just to make sure I sound ok on the podcast.
I repeat phrases like,
- laba laba laba
- peeli pali poli
This is the part where my sons and wife tosses a coin if I’m still sane. 😱 😂
I record using GarageBand. I don’t use any special settings. “Narrative Vocal” works wonders for me.
I use ATR 2100 USB with a pop filter to record the podcast.
Hosting With Transistor.fm
I host with Transistor FM .
I’ve been following Justin ever since his crazy experiements of “100 things to do in a year”.
For me creating a podcast is a crazy experiment. So hosting on his platform seemed just about right.
Also I’m part of his Megamaker club 😜
Cover Art With Sketch app
I use Sketch to create podcast cover and episode promotional images.
I live in India and 4 hour power-cuts are common. I need something that I can work even offline.
Also sketch has a great “pay once and use forever” pricing model.
How do I promote my podcasts?
As like my blog, only friends and family listen to them (more friends than my family).
I share as whatsapp status, LinkedIn story, LinkedIn post, Twitter story, Tweet…
Still early days to get good traffic.
