This episode is all for the beginner podcaster who is trying to decide if they want to start a podcast, how difficult podcasting really is and what equipment and tools you need to get started with your first few podcast episodes.  In this episode, I am sharing my entire podcasting journey with you along with all of my lessons learned, including the tools I started my journey with as well as changes I've made going into my second season. My goal is to demystify podcasting so you aren't afraid to get started if it is something you really want and should be doing.  Podcasting is great for those of you who aren't great at the written word or who find the process of speaking so much easier.  Now, it doesn't mean there isn't work involved in podcasting, but the work tends to be much more enjoyable when it is in a medium you gravitate towards. I also want to help those who may want to start, but don't have a lot of money to throw into expensive gear.  It isn't necessary and in this episode, I share exactly what you do need. HIGHLIGHTS How I got started How to select the right format for your podcast Recommended equipment for beginners Where to store your podcast How to save time on editing How to develop a seamless podcast guest experience Additional things I learned along the way about podcasting Make sure to check out the show page where I provide you with a list of the technical resources I used as well as other information and tweaks I've made during this new podcasting season.
