ASK SARAH #10: Starting A Podcast? Tools, Structure, Editing + More
Are you curious about starting a podcast, or in the process of starting one?
I get dozens of questions about starting a podcast, so grab your headphones and listen to this episode. Here’s what I cover in this episode of Ask Sarah:
What tools do I use and what equipment do I love? Are there tutorials that help? What platform should I use to do recording?
I break down all the pieces of a show, and how I learned the sequence, and how to write it all down for notes and editing.
Do you want to do self-editing or outsource it? How much does it cost? Who can you use?
AUDIO + VOICE TRAINING:
How do you get better at recording and creating good-sounding audio? Here’s what I do to set up a great audio environment and how to record in “one take” as much as possible.

We would like to hear from you, our community of parents. We are opening up anonymous comments to hear your stories. How has access (or lack of access) to abortion affected your life, work, or family? What was your abortion like? What do you wish other people would know about abortion?
Writing the newsletter has turned into a struggle. My sentences are soupy, filled with mud. After two years of living through a pandemic, I’m foggy, I’m forgetful, and I’m clearly not my best. How do I move forward?
The Wise Women’s Council is our annual leadership incubator for high-impact women navigating the big (and little) moves that come with building a career, life, and family. We are now accepting applications for our 2022 class.
How badly is this year, this pandemic, messing up our kids and us, as parents? After more than a year of living through social distancing, virtual school and blended schools, and highly restricted business activities, parents and children are suffering tremendously. We still don’t know what the long-term damage looks like, so I reached out to a parenting and children’s psychologist, Dr. Courtney Bolton, to ask her about how parents and kids will fare through all of this. Here’s what a psychologist says about the well being of parents and children in a pandemic, and how to help them (and yourself) through it.
