Episode 184: My Podcast Stack
In this episode, Rob Cairns talks about his podcast stack.
- What I use to record the podcast.
- What I use for show notes.
- What I use to edit the podcast.
Hey everybody, Rob here again. In today’s podcast, I said I wanted to give you some tools that I use to make the SDM show. And this came out of a Twitter thread that was going on today. And I thought I’d share them here in the stream for those who are listening. So you understand. So one of the tools that I use, first of all, for a guest to book on my podcast is a tool called tidy cow. Tidy cal is an app sumo product that lets you book and it actually sends people back a Google meat or Zoom link. The only issue with that is none of the tools sent back because then Castro link, which I’ll get to in a minute, so I actually have to manually send the personal books back a record link, but that’s fine by me. I use Zen caster for recording. Some people like other sites like Riverside, I’ve settled on Zen caster. For me, it does a really good job. It records both guests or multiple guests in separate audio tracks. So that works out really well. What I use for editing is Audacity. And one of the reasons I settled on Audacity is it’s cross platform. And for those who don’t know, I work on a Linux Mint box. And that’s what I run my agency on. So a dash city works really great for audio editing and combining tracks, and editing tracks. And that frankly, I’ve got it down. For transcripts, I use otter.ai. I’ve used otter for a while. The problem with AI products are not 100% Perfect. And I know that but it gives my reader a guy to what was in the podcast, so they have to keep in mind they’re not perfect. But otter is my choice for transcripts for hosting my podcast to use cast DOS, I have nothing but amazing things to say about the casters team and their support and what they do. Before cast, though, so used anchor to start out and I went almost two years before I moved to cast those. Frankly, I wish I had done it sooner. To promote my podcasting email, I use ConvertKit. And I’ve also recently moved to ConvertKit. And I’m loving ConvertKit by the day. So a big thank you to Jason Resnick for pushing me that way. And a lot of discussions we’ve had either on Twitter or on my podcast or one on one. Thanks, Jason for that. For video shows. Lately, I’ve settled on melon app. And melon app is very similar to stream yard, which many people know about. And for me melon works really well. And then what I’ll do is I’ll use the VLC player to actually strip the video off and just give me the audio so use VLC as well. So I hope that helps. That’s some of the tools that I use in putting together my podcast. Not every answer is right or wrong, but check them out. And I hope that helps you and talk to you by Rob Karen studying digital marketing. I hope you’re all doing well. Have an amazing day. Talk to y’all soon. Bye for now.
