JDB 010: Podcasting for Lawyers 101

Heil PR40 Podcast Microphone

Podcasting for lawyers.  If you are like most business owners you may wonder why in the world you would want to start a podcast and even if you are one of those brave souls who does want to jump in you may not be sure what you need to get started.

In this episode of the JDBlogger Podcast I go over the two big questions of podcasting: Why and How?  Here are a few links to resources and equipment that are mentioned in the show:

Podcasting  Microphones:

Blue Microphones Snowball USB Microphone

I used the Snowball microphone with my Consumer Warrior Podcast for the first 6 or 7 episodes.  You can check it out here and listen to the sound and decide for yourself.  Great little microphone but doesn’t give quite the sound quality of the Heil PR40.

Heil PR-40 Dynamic Studio Recording Microphone

The Heil PR-40 is a great microphone for podcasting.  I started using this microphone exclusively when I launched the JDBlogger Podcast.  Delivers great sounds and makes you sound better on your podcast than you do in real life!  Definitely worth the investment.

Podcasting Recording Software/Hardware

I use Audacity to edit my podcasts however I used to record directly into my laptop using the Audacity software.  This is an open source produce and costs you nothing to download.
Roland R-05 Studio WAVE/MP3 Recorder

I now record my podcasts into my Roland R-05 recorder.  This is a great option for when you want to record outside of your office or studio and also helps you to avoid lost podcast episodes in the event that your hard drive crashes.

Podcast Hosting

The leader in the industry is Liberated Syndication (Libysn).  They are very reasonably priced and provide you with great analytics to monitor how you are doing.

Podcast Training

The King of Podcasting is Cliff Ravenscraft at the Podcast Answerman Podcast.  Cliff has two podcasting courses: the first one is free and will teach you the basics of getting your first episode up and on the airwaves.

Learn How to Podcast

Great free course to bring you up to speed on the fundamentals of podcasting.

Podcasting A to Z 

If you ready to take your podcast to the next level the A to Z Course is going to get you there.  This is a paid course but worth every penny.  If you put my last name “Skiba” in the check out box you will get $100 off the price of the course!

Tool of the Trade

This weeks Tool of the Trade is Buffer.  Buffer allows you to schedule out your posts and communications on your various social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.
