How to Create a Podcast
The House of #EdTech Facebook Group kicked things off with the following questions from the following people:
- KC Testerman (@kctesterman, https://kctestandtech.org/) asked, “How do you cut in the music over and through fluently? Is there a specific way, program, tip?” – I use the Auto-Duck effect in Audacity along with the Studio Fadeout as well as fade-in and fade-out.
- Eric Guise asked, “What are all the programs that you use to run your podcast?”
- Wiley Brazier (@wileybrazer), via Voxer/Facebook, asked, “Where can I get various effects and copyright free music. The students will be doing video as well so we’ll also need copyright free still and video backgrounds as well.”
- Erik Meyer reached out via Voxer with some great questions about possibly starting a podcast of his own.
8 Steps to Create Your Podcast
- Press Record
- My secret sauce is made up of the following Audacity Effects in a Chain:
- EQ, Amplify, Compression, Amplify, Noise Gate
- Export file as an MP3
- Tag your MP3
- Tagging your MP3 is an important step, as it will make the MP3 file you just exported a standalone file, meaning that if some information is lost in translation in the communication between your media host and any of the Podcast directories your Podcast is associated with, that directory can pull the information straight from the MP3 itself.

ADAM CLARK – Has been teaching Social Studies in Alabama for the last 7 years. He resides with his wife and daughter in a small rural town (very Smallville-like) in northeast Alabama.
Adam has been a life-long fan of comics, superheroes, and Star Wars. Most of his childhood memories involve him mimicking a fictional hero. As a child he found me drawn to not just superheroes, but rather the idea of the hero.
HeroED is a podcast created to help educators become superheroes in their classrooms. We discuss resources, technology, best practices, and mindset that help create a positive classroom culture to help our students soar to heights beyond their dreams. We may even get a little geeky along the way!
