Podcasting on the Go? Here’s What You Need to Know

You’re constantly on the move. However, you also want to pursue your podcasting dreams at the same time. What to do?

Fortunately for you, it is possible to podcast even while on the move. So yes, it is viable to snag some airtime-worthy interview with that well-known musician you spot at a music festival. Or maybe that famous celebrity you run into while in a convention.

But how exactly do you get it done?

The tips below should help you become a pro at podcasting while on the go in no time:

Install a voice-recording app on your phone

When doing the usual scheduled podcast, many use a broadcast-standard and portable mic with flash storage. However, if you want to prepare for any opportunity to interview someone worthy of airtime, installing a voice-recording app on your phone should be deemed a must.

As long as the audio is in usable format (MP3, WAV, M4A), you’ll have the option to export it to the software you’re using for podcast editing. Some of the apps you can use to record audio include Google Keep, Evernote, and OneNote.

Keep needed hardware handy at all times

If mobile podcasting is something you have a thing for, you need to always keep a few essentials handy. That being said, the following should find their way in your car glove compartment or bag:

  • Alternative recording device - just in case you’ll forget your charger and you can’t find a power outlet nearby, bringing an alternative recorder with you is a wise move.
  • Mobile battery pack - fortunately very affordable nowadays. Charged, it can provide at least four charges for your mobile phone and a single charge for your tablet.
  • External microphone - when recording a group of people, this one can prove useful.

Recording phone interviews is an option

Podcasting on the go does not always mean bumping into awesome interview prospects while you’re out. Podcasting on the go can also mean interviewing your guest wherever you are. Fortunately, as long as you have a smartphone that supports call recording software, you pretty much have everything you need.

Of course, it is important that the subject knows and agrees that the call be recorded. Since recording a phone call using your smartphone isn’t always available by default, finding a suitable app should be a priority. Fortunately, there’s no shortage of call recording tools nowadays available for both Android and iOS users.

Ensure you can edit audio wherever you may be

If you desperately have to tidy up and polish a recording prior to publishing, you’d be delighted to know there are several audio editing tools available at your disposal. If not, having a team of professionals help you would also be a good idea. As long as you have a good Internet connection, sending over your raw audio to be edited should not be a problem.

Besides, getting expert help can be highly advantageous for people on the go. You just send your audio and wait for it to be sent back to you exactly when you want it. That will give you ample time to work on other aspects of the podcast that needs your time, focus, and expertise. If anything, it’s investment truly worth looking into.
