A Cheatsheet To Start Podcasting

Whenever you start a new endeavor, it can be a challenging period. Whether you are starting a new job, learning a new skill, or trying something new for the first time, it can be overwhelming. When I began The Bee Influenced podcast, I felt overwhelmed with the amount of knowledge and skills I needed to produce my show. If there was only a way to have a podcast cheatsheet.

Like many of you, I had to learn everything from scratch. I had to discover what hardware required, software, how to record a show, how to edit a podcast, where to host your podcast, and everything in between. It felt like looking up a mountain in a sense, you know where you want to go, but you are unsure about what step to take first. If you are looking to start a podcast, you know what I am talking about. However, lucky for you, in this blog post, I am going to share with you a resource I created to help you get started in podcasting. I call this podcasting cheatsheet, The Bee Heard Checklist.

The Bee Heard Checklist

The Bee Heard Checklist is a resource I created to help you get started in podcasting. This resource will teach you exactly what you need to start your podcast. The podcasting cheatsheet is less than ten pages, making it easy to digest and consume. The last page of the checklist is a 1-page summary that explains everything discussed earlier in the cheatsheet. Therefore, if you are looking for a 1-page summary that explains everything you need to start your podcast, The Bee Heard Checklist is right for you.

What Is Covered In the Podcasting CheatSheet?

When starting a podcast, one can often feel as though there is too much information. It can get to the point where there is so much information, that one might feel afraid to decide because it might be the wrong one. The Bee Heard Checklist takes away that remorse and uncertainty, providing you with the information needed to start a podcast. This podcasting cheatsheet will cover everything you need to know from the equipment, software, podcast directories and everything in between.

Recording Equipment

What do you need to record your podcast? How do you plan on recording your show? Do you plan on having guests on your podcast?


When you look to start a podcast, you will discover you’re going to need primarily two kinds of software. You are going to need software for the production of your podcast, and you’re going to need internet software.

Podcast Directories

If you are starting a podcast, you need to find a way for people to discover your show. What good is it having a podcast but no person can see it? A podcast directory is a place you submit your podcast feed URL to, for your show to automatically synchronize on their platform. You must first submit your podcast to their directory, and if accepted your podcast will begin to appear on their platform.

You can learn more about, what podcasting equipment, and software you need to start your show in the Bee Heard Checklist. The checklist will also provide a more significant in-depth analysis of podcasting directories, give a sense of direction of how to submit to a directory, and a list of options. All of this and more is in your FREE copy of the Bee Heard Checklist.
