Make a Pillow Fort for Your Podcasts

In which I write about a neat NPR podcast audio recording hack.

Don Gonyea with the Student Podcast Challenge have distributed some excellent tips on how to make your podcasts sound great, even if you don’t have an expensive sound-proof studio. These tips are great advice for those of us who are terrible at being audio engineers. While I may not be recording podcasts, I love reading tips on how to do things without spending a fortune.

These tips come from correspondents and audio engineers who are often not in a studio, or a place that can accommodate favorable recording conditions. Obviously good equipment helps with this, but making the environment more favorable can make mediocre equipment work better and give you surprising results.

Any other tips for recording audio?
