Tools for Podcasting

As much as I enjoy visual media, there’s something special about the connection that you can make with others through a podcast.

Here are the tools that I used to record, edit, and share the Verbal to Visual podcast.

Recording


I use a tool called SquadCast to record conversations with my guests remotely.

What makes this a great platform is the high-quality audio (each file is recorded locally during the conversation) and the easy-to-use interface.

I also use the tool Calendly to automate the scheduling of calls.

I’ve used the Blue Yeti USB microphone for years, and I still love it.

Editing



I use Adobe Audition to edit my podcast episodes through my Adobe Creative Cloud account, which I like because it gives you access to the entire suite of Adobe products for a reasonable monthly price.

Hosting



I’ve started multiple podcasts over the years, and prior to Buzzsprout the process was a huge pain. Their clear interface makes it easy to upload new episodes, the embeddable podcast player looks great, and their tool to submit to all of the various podcast platforms is incredibly helpful.
