Today I released a new episode of the Audacity Bootcamp podcast. I’ve decided to revert the name of the podcast back to the Audacity Bootcamp and I explain a few reasons why in this episode. I also talk about my minimalist approach to recording and editing audio for my podcast and for my videos, and the new version of Audacity (3.0.4) that’s been released.
Podcasting doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. If you’re just getting started in podcasting, you don’t have to sink a lot of cash into what you’re doing. You can get inexpensive hardware and Audacity is free. The most important part of your podcast is the room you record in. You can get great audio with inexpensive gear if your initial recording is free of echo and room noise. That’s not hard to achieve. Some blankets, pillows, moving blankets, and closed curtains will add immeasurably to the quality of the audio in your podcast. I’ll be talking more about that in the next episode.
