Ok do I need a headset or headphones? Do I need a $300.00 microphone or the $25.00 one? Can I use my laptop's microphone and speaker? Do I have to purchase a sound board? Do I use Skype or Zoom? Should I dress up and video tape the podcast? Do I need a script? What do I do with the recording? Do I host it on my web site or should I send it to a podcast directory?
YES, YES, YES and NO, NO, NO.
Before you decide that your claim to fame is a podcast, you need to look at testing equipment to get a feel of what you need. Oh yea before the equipment discovery and purchase are you ready to commit to the time needed? Its not a hobby if you are looking to do it professionally.
