Guess what? I’ve never been in a recording studio! True story. I’m what I like to call an at-home podcaster. Yes, I podcast at home and I don’t have fancy equipment or a sound booth in my office. I don’t even have a door on my office, but I make it work and you can too!
Here’s the thing. Having perfect sound, the perfect equipment and the perfect space does not a great podcast make. It’s all about the content and how you present it. Focus on working with what you have and improving upon those little things.
My top at-home podcasting tips:
- Get a Mic. It doesn’t have to be fancy or expensive. I love my blue snowball. It works for me. Find something that works for you.
- Test your sound and find a good spot in your house to record
- Let go of perfection! You can improve over time and that’s OK!
- Start somewhere. Don’t let the fear of bad audio keep you from getting started. Just do it!
Look. If I can record a podcast successfully every week with trains, kids, animals, and the dryer going, you can too.
