Recording Your Podcast
Once you’ve planned out your show, go ahead and record yourself. If this is your first time doing a talk show, you’re probably going to sound uneasy or like you’re reading from a script. That’s OK – the only way to get better is to keep doing it. It might help if you imagine yourself addressing your audience at a live show. You can record as many times as you like, so take your time.
When your recording is ready, use an audio editing program to make sure the volume is stable, and to edit out any awkward pauses or “ums and ahs” that you want to get rid of. Many podcasters use Audacity because it’s free and easy to use.
The two main functions you will be using are “Normalize” which makes sure the volume is stable throughout the show, and “Edit” which will get rid of the pauses and unwanted segments. If you’re having trouble using Audacity, check on YouTube for a variety of tutorials on how to edit podcasts.
If you want to get real fancy, you can add tracks so that you can have music playing in the background as you speak, or jingles when you switch segments on the show.
