Ep. #12 – Main Problem with DIY Podcasting and Why You Have to Have A Microphone If You Want To Be A Podcaster

The #1 complaint across ALL studies pertaining to podcast audiences, always has something to do with audio quality.

We have all heard those shows, they start and we immediately hear the background noises of the room being picked up on the recording right before we hear an inhale and then a greeting from the host as their echoing voice projects across their table and into their computer’s built-in mic. And after just a few seconds of that, you will choose to either listen to another episode or stop listening to the show completely. It’s not that they are a bad host or that the topic is bad, but you just don’t want to listen to such poor sounding audio for 15 minutes to an hour no matter what the topic is.

But what if I told you that this issue is easier to fix than you might think. And that fixing your audio is as simple as learning some basic editing and investing in a simple microphone that will plug right into your computer?

In this episode, we will talk about:

+Alternative options to the common DIY tools used to record podcasts today.

+What easy and free software are available to you for enhancing the sound of your podcast.

+My-go recommendations if you are ready to invest in a microphone so people can listen to you clearly.
