Podcasting and Audio Production: Introduction

Resources available to get started with audio production and podcasting.


Podcasting has seen exponential growth in the past 15 years, becoming one of the most popular media outlets in the world. In the United States alone, over a third of Americans listen to podcasts regularly. There are over 850,000 different podcasts out there with over 30 million episodes. In the past 5 years, the amount of ad revenue for podcasts has increased ten-fold. Because of this widespread popularity and viability as a profitable format, many people who have no background in audio production are interested in starting their own podcast.

This guide offers information, tutorials, and online resources for novice and intermediate podcasters alike; whether you're starting fresh or just looking to polish an already established podcast, this guide is for you.
