Excellent book that has really helped me start my own podcast. Not having much experience in podcasting this book led me through the steps in a way anyone can understand. It was great to get the knowledge from someone who has been there and created their own podcast, sprinkling the ‘how-to’ guide with their own real world experience of actually doing it. Recommended to anyone who wants to start a podcast, and it is true there has never been a better time to do it! – Amazon Review
Podcasting has seen a massive popularity boom in the last few years – largely due to technology making life easier, and making production more accessible.
How To Start Podcasting has been designed as a practical guide to lead you through the entire process, from conception, right through to launch. Whether you have a good working knowledge of podcasts, or are a beginner, this book will demonstrate the 13 key benefits of podcasting, why it can be so impactful to your business, plus showing you the types of equipment, tools and platforms you should be looking at when starting your own journey.
In easily digestible chapters, How To Start Podcasting will also show you why starting in podcasting doesn’t need to be costly either. There are lots of hints, tips and guides to getting the most out of the equipment you may already have, or getting set up for minimal spend (sometimes even for free!), with plenty of gear, platform and software advice along the way.
Think of this book as your podcasting toolkit you can refer to when you need a friendly guide to offer advice, support and inspiration, to boost you along in your podcast adventure.
Above all, whether you’re planning on producing podcasts solo, with a team, or with lots of guests to interview, this book will help you think a bit like a journalist, to help you create the best content you possibly can, so you can become the voice of authority in your industry.
In truth, there has never been a better time to start a podcast of your own. Let me show you how.
About the Author
Richard Heathcote was born in Birmingham, UK, although now calls leafy Warwickshire his home. (Or as he calls it, rural living but with decent broadband.) He has been a full time professional voiceover artist for over 14 years, producing audio for small, medium and large bluechip clients all over the world.
Over the course of his career, he’s become well versed in audio and video production, with a keen interest in photography too. Having been involved in podcasting now for many years, and spent countless amounts of time researching the industry and proactively creating content, it was about time some of that knowledge and experience was put down on paper to benefit others.
His first (and let’s face it, probably only) book ‘How To Start Podcasting’, is designed to be a useful toolkit for people to use as a reference point, to be able to learn about the world of podcasting in a completely digestible format – without all the unnecessary jargon.
