Podcasting: Making a Podcast

Podcast Hosting Sites


Certain equipment for creating a podcast can be checked out at the front desk of Irwin Library, including:

  • wireless microphones
  • headset microphones
  • PC laptops loaded with Audacity
  • Mac laptops loaded with GarageBand and Audacity

In CAT (IL 303) a snowball microphone can be rented by faculty or with faculty permissions for a class. Email Megan Grady-Rutledge at for more information on the procedure for this device.

Editing Tip!

When you're editing, make sure you give yourself enough time to go through all the raw files. Depending on the size of the project and the quality level you need to meet, editing can take up hours more than you have recorded. Don't be surprised by how much of a time investment cutting and splicing will really be.
