Consult the links
here and here for detailed information on starting a podcast. Before you begin, however, you will need a PC or Mac with at least 4 GB of RAM and adequate storage space.
In addition, you will need audio recording/editing software. One suggestion is
Audacity, a free, open-source application for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
If you have a Mac, iPhone or other iOS device, another option is GarageBand, which comes free with new Macs and iOS devices. Apple Support's page on
