How to make a podcast

Recording Hardware
A built-in microphone such as a laptop oron a phone – this is fine for recording if the room is quiet.  A headset is better and can cancel out a lot of noise and pops.  A microphone is best, but may not be necessary.

With  a PC, a headset, Audacity, and  LAME,  Garageband for Macs, you are ready to go.
