I have detailed my writing process quite a bit lately, but that made me realize I have never pulled all the pieces of my podcasting setup together. Let’s change that.

Equipment

I did a lot of research on beginners microphones before I started podcasting and although there are better ones out there, I landed on the Rode Podcaster. I have a dream of upgrading to a Beta 87 at some point, but this does a great job for now. Altogether here’s what I’m using:

Software

When I’m recording with someone else, I use the traditional set of software that most podcasters use:

Hosting

In my opinion, the gold standard for hosting your files is Libsyn. It just works and I’ve never had an issue with them. My feed is a custom XML file generated with Jekyll. If you are a Jekyll user and want to run a podcast, you can get the source code for this here.
