Must-Have Tools Used for Podcasting [ep. 29]

Are you looking to enter the world of podcasting but feeling lost when it comes to choosing the right tools for your venture? Or perhaps you’re already a podcaster seeking to optimize your workflow with the most efficient tools available? In this blog post, we’ll dive deep into the top tools used for podcasting.

Google Drive:

One of the best places to house all of your audio files, graphics, and create outlines. It’s free and allows for easy organization of your podcasting materials.

Podcast Host:

Platforms like Captivate and Buzzsprout are highly recommended for hosting your podcast, offering various plans to cater to your specific needs.

Recording Software:

Tools such as Audacity, GarageBand, Zencastr, Riverside, and Descript are essential for recording and editing podcast episodes. Each has its unique features to suit diverse preferences.

Website and Calendar Invites:

A dedicated podcast page on your website and tools like Calendly or Acuity for scheduling guest interviews are vital for podcasters.

Project Management:

For keeping organized, project management systems like Asana, ClickUp, and Monday are often utilized. However, some prefer simpler methods like utilizing Google Drive for podcast-related tasks.


Basic equipment such as a computer, microphone, and wired headphones are essential for any podcaster.

The podcast mic I use is the Audio-Technica ATR2100x-USB, but there are many others out there that all do really well. I highly recommend a dynamic microphone if you are not recording in the most ideal situation.

Regardless of whether you’re a podcaster or hoping to be, it’s crucial to find the right tools that align with your needs, preferences, and workflow. The podcasting tool landscape is diverse, and what works for one person may not work for another. Therefore, experimentation and finding the right fit for your unique requirements is key.
