How to start a podcast on mobile with a good Environment
When you record your podcast, you must keep a note of your environment,
There shouldn’t be noise, or interruptions. And If you have, you need to figure out some things
Like personally I faced some issue to which I also found a solution, by the way my problem was funny 😊
Crows were my problem – I didn’t notice this till I listened to my recording, the crows would start at 5 am and keep shouting till the evening but at the night they would sleep and that was the perfect time for me to record my podcast episode,
Also, there would be other problems in your case like cars passing by and horning if your house is close to the road or a railway track
But there is solution for every problem,
For most of the people recording podcast at the night is the best time, I also record my YouTube video at night
So, make sure you have the right environment to record where there is no noise and echo and most importantly crows lol
Now, Press record!

2) Use applications, if you don’t have and even if you have pre-installed audio recording app

Best application for mobile devices are RecForge II and audio lab
Use RecForge II For recording audio because it has an amazing feature to control how much audio it can capture.

Use Audio lab for editing as it does it the best,
You can cut the unwanted parts, make the audio better, merge the audio files, etc

I use it for editing and also tested others but this works best.
