Here are some of my favorite tools and resources for podcast production, recording, editing, and promotion.

Remember: Start simple.

You can always get fancier later, but the best podcast is the one you actually DO—not the one that's so "perfect" it never makes it out of your head and into the world.

The tools and resources below are simple and effective enough to get you started. And I'm still using many of them, even after 4+ years of podcasting—they're that good!

Other Podcasting Tools

Podcast Fast Track

These folks have been editing and producing my podcast for years now, and I can't even begin to count all the hours they've saved me. Not to mention they make everything sound excellent. Learn more and hire them at podcastfasttrack.com, and be sure to tell them I sent you! 

 

Liberated Syndication

Libsyn is the longest-running podcast host, and it's my personal favorite. They've hosted Food Psych for more than 4 years now, and they've been incredibly reliable and helpful. Learn more and sign up at libsyn.com

 

iTunes Connect

In the words of podcasting expert Rob Walch, "if you're not on iTunes, you don't have a podcast." Don't let that be you. Submit your podcast by going to iTunes Connect and adding your podcast's RSS feed (which your podcast host will provide).
