What equipment and software do I need to start a podcast?
To start an account and create your podcast on TalkShoe, you simply need an email address to register your TalkShoe account and an Internet connected computer, smart phone, or tablet to connect to the TalkShoe website to create the account.

Once you have your account created and podcast set up, you can simply use your phone or cellphone to call in to the online studio to record live episodes, using one of the world-wide dial-in phone numbers, entering the show ID of your podcast, and your account’s PIN.  Using special key-entry phone commands, you can start and pause your recording, end the show, and have limited moderator controls.  If you set up your TalkShoe account with the “on demand” setting, you can even record live “on-demand” episodes without needing to schedule them in advance by only calling in to your online studio on the phone.

For greater control over the podcast platform, you can use a computer device such as a Windows, Mac, or Linux PC, or an Android or Apple smartphone or tablet, to connect via the TalkShoe website over the Internet.  Use any modern browser such Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, or Apple Safari.  In addition, have a microphone connected to your device to record your voice with.  Ideally also have audio played back through headphones, earbuds, or a headset to help prevent echo on your live call.  With the Internet connection, you will be able to include video elements such as webcams, shared documents, and shared desktops, plus communicate with guests in the text chat.  The connection through the Internet will also allow you, and any moderators that you assign, to easily moderate the call, controlling who can use the video and text elements of the episode.

For uploaded recordings, all you need is an Internet connection, a microphone, and a computing device such a Windows, Mac, or Linux computer, or an Apple or Android smartphone or tablet.  You can record your episodes using audio recording software, such as the free Audacity application available for Windows, MacOS, and Linux.  Record your episode, edit it, and upload it to your show as an uploaded episode!
Can I upload my podcast on multiple platforms like Spotify?
Absolutely!  Every podcast on our podcast platform comes with a free auto-generated RSS feed.  This special file contains all the information about your podcast, including your name as the host, the podcast’s title, episode dates and times, episode titles, episode durations, and most importantly locations of your episodes.  

Your RSS feed will have a web-address which you can easily copy from the TalkShoe website.  You can list your podcast on various directories, such as Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, TuneIn, Stitcher, and many more by signing up with those services and providing your podcast’s RSS feed URL.  You only need to register your show once on each service.  

New listeners can find your podcast’s listing on those services and subscribe to your show.  Your episodes, including any future episodes, will automatically download to their device so they can listen.  It’s as easy as that.  Just register on each service using your podcast’s RSS feed URL, provided to you for free by TalkShoe’s podcast software!
