Stephen Jondrew and Stargate Pioneer host a weekly podcast dedicated for the Hobby Podcaster with tips and tricks on how to get started, sound great, have fun and not break the bank. Each week they talk about a podcasting topic in depth within an arc (like how to start a podcast, podcast gear for the hobby podcaster, and tips on different types of presenting-announcing-hosting) and then run down a current news item of importance to podcasting. They also run down any feedback and offer advice on how to make your hobby podcasting time better, easier and more fun.

Better Podcasting – Episode 002 - The Recording Process

Welcome to Better Podcasting! We talk about podcast tips, tools and best practices to help you succeed with your podcast! Just like you we podcast purely out of the love and the fun of it. Podcasting is our hobby and we love that it is yours too! We always encourage your questions and feedback and you can find all of our contact information at

In our second show we discuss the recording process including some of the gear and software you may need to get started. You'll want to consider your budget for a microphone (our top recommendations are the Audio-Technica AT2005-USB and Audio-Technica ATR2100-USB), podcast delivery method (audio vs video), and method of communicating with your hosts (Skype, Hangouts, etc). We'll also give some tips on Microphone position and suggestions on how to record your show too!

We also debut our recurring segment - the Better Podcasting Download. This week's topic is Google's announcement that Google Play will soon include podcasts!
