How To Podcast & YouTube with GAK!

Ready to start your Podcast or YouTube Channel?

While many people think that podcasting/vlogging is an expensive and complicated hobby, the truth is that it doesn’t have to be. Launching a YouTube channel or Podcast is pretty straightforward, and you won’t need much to get started! In fact, you can start with just a microphone, headphones, recording/editing software and hardware. Chances are you may want to splurge on a few more expensive items, because they can, and will, make life easier, but that’s really all you need to get your channel/podcast on the road to success!

The Podcast & YouTube Setup!

Finding the right Microphone!

Audio is one area that you will not want to cut corners with. Your audience will be able to overlook a few mistakes, but poor audio is generally frowned upon. You’ll want to avoid (as much as possible) the mic that comes built into your computer and instead go for a USB microphone or you could spend a bit more and choose a dedicated XLR microphone for superior quality and better control over the sound.

Find the right Headphones that suit you!

Your headphones don’t have to cost ££££’s, but you will want something that’s up to the job. You’ll need to hear clearly what you and your guests are saying; If you’re conducting interviews, live sessions or reviewing audio, a great pair of headphones is a must!
