Shawn Collins of blog.affiliatetip.com talks about the tools he uses to record and publish podcasts. Q What do you use to record podcasts? A: I like the Plantronics brand a lot for the headphones I use to record podcasts, and I am currently using the Plantronics .Audio 655 USB Multimedia Headset. It’s good quality and plugs into the USB. The podcasts are recorded over Skype, because it provides a cleaner sound than a telephone call, and there is a software program called Pamela that integrates with Skype to record the show. There are other programs you can use to record a podcast, depending on whether you’re using a Mac of PC. In my case, I record on a PC and Pamela has been my favorite. After the podcast is recorded, I edit it with a program called Sony Sound Forge Audio Studio. This software is easy to learn, and it renders the audio fast. When I want to record a podcast and I am away from my computer, I use either the M-Audio MicroTrack 24/96 Professional 2-Channel Mobile Digital Recorder or my Nexus One phone, which has an app called DroidRecord. You could also use an iPhone. Recently, I picked up the Alesis USB Microphone Podcast Kit, because I thought it would be fun to have a free-standing microphone on my desk when doing a podcast, instead of having the microphone attached to the headset and hanging in front of my mouth. I need to sneak a drink once in a while when podcasting, and also the separate microphone enables me to pretend I am on the radio, rather than

    @affiliatetip Garageband will work for anyone who is mic’d up to the computer. As long as the computer can pick up their voice, it will record it. Also, if you have a Mac server, you can use Podcast Capture which is really sweet. Only problem is that you can’t edit anything or add your intro/outro music to in on this software.

    @clayteacher1 Does Garageband enable you to have other people on a podcast with you who aren’t in the room, or do you need Skype or something for that?

    @Rayphunk I don’t take live callers – I have a co-host and I dial her in on Skype. Then I use a program called Pamela to record the show.

  5. Rayphunk Says:

    i have a question when you have callers call in your show,you use skype? and how are able to record them talking?

    Sorry to many questions?

    Garageband with the Mac is much easier and you don’t need 3 or 4 different software packages installed to make it work. It converts all podcasts into MP3 or M4a (for i-Tunes) for you without opening up or downloading different companies’ software on your computer. Just a thought.

    @troglodyte3344 cool – I am anxious to get started on the new mic – it will be easier to grab a quick drink while recording, too

    @affiliatetip yeah the stand up one. I Use it to record dreamweaver tutorials for my other channel and I record through camtasia studio.

    I was sick of not being able to move my head with the headphone mic i used to have and it would pick up my breathing too. So i got a stand up mic.

    With the stand up mic I put a couple of socks over it to dampen what it picks up.

  9. affiliatetip Says:

    @troglodyte3344 which one… the standing mic that comes with the podcasting kit?
