During my honeymoon, I had several episodes of the Ramen Noodle and The Audacity to Podcast automatically post. How can you prerecord and schedule your episodes to magically post while you are away? I share some tips for workflow, Audacity, and WordPress.
This week's Audacity tip is the power of the pause button.
Scott shares a success from advice I gave in episode 12 about getting an analog-to-digital converter for reducing digital interference noise. Scott bought a Syba SD-CM-UAUD USB Stereo Audio Adapter for $10 shipped (now $14 + shipping) and it worked perfectly.
Tips for prerecording podcast episodes
- Be organized and plan ahead.
- Consider bringing guests onto the show to provide content.
- When you're in “the zone” could be the best time to prerecord.
- Name your episodes and write your shownotes immediately after recording.
- Try to have your shownotes written ahead of time.
- Keep it simple! The less editing you perform, the quicker you can prerecord your episodes. Consider even allowing a few more “glitches” than you might normally allow.
- Don't feel like you have to release episodes while you're gone, unless you have contractual obligations. Sometimes a break is nice, and it ensures your listeners won't fall behind (especially around holidays). In fact, iTunes will pause (not unsubscribe) your listeners' subscriptions if they fall behind.
- Schedule your post in WordPress to automatically post while you're away.
