Podcasts – audio services that feed content to a particular set of audience, are on the rise consistently. From 2020, the lockdown year, the number of people who listen to podcasts have multiplied. Essentially, they are quite flexible to pay attention to. Unlike videos that require fixated attention, you can listen to podcasts while doing chores or while working.
Interestingly, podcasts can be recorded by anyone from the comfort of their homes. It’s similar to recording in a studio. In fact, some popular podcasters record themselves in a set-up studio. Although studios make sounds better and the podcast professional, they aren’t quite necessary.
To be a podcaster, you need:
- A recording device – this could be your phone, laptop or any recording device that is connected to your podcast account.
- A table microphone – for proper sound transmission.
- A plan – It’s quite easy to be led by excitement into creating content; but without a concrete plan, consistency may not be a part of the equation for long.
That said, in this article, Glazia would be listing five podcasts you should make your favourites.
