How to start a podcast for Free

Have you ever wanted to start a podcast but had no idea how to get started? or maybe you’ve heard people talk about it but wasn’t sure what technology you would need? In this short series, I share how to start a podcast for Free  by using the Free Anchor app. All you need is your smart phone and an internet connection, no need to purchase any technology (unless you want to) or subscribe to host your content.

What’s a Podcast?

Podcasting is a form of audio broadcasting on the internet which allows the user to download and listen to audio content. Podcasting was invented in 2004 and was invented by  BBC journalist Ben Hammersley who combined the word Pod (ipod) and broadcasting.

Why Podcast?

Podcasting is an alternative way to create useful content and share with your audience. It’s a great medium for people who may not have time to watch your video or read your written content but may want to stay updated while driving or walking. Listeners can access your podcast in many different ways, but Itunes is one of the most popular ways for listeners to subscribe and to keep updated with new episodes.
