Podcast Software Reviews
Everything from podcast hosts to audio editing software to podcast listening apps.
I consistently recommend having your WordPress site separate from your podcast host. I have briefly highlighted a few of my favorite web hosting companies for WordPress, but I wanted to go a little deeper and give you my full list of recommendations.
You won’t see most of the common web hosts that a lot of sites recommend. Why? Because most people just recommend those companies because they have higher than average affiliate payouts. I’ll show you what I mean:
If you dig a little deeper, you’ll find awful support, slow sites, lost backups, and other issues that should be considered dealbreakers.
And if you dig even deeper, you’ll see that most of these cheap hosts are actually owned by the same company. What that means is that many people get unhappy and leave, only to sign back up with the same company, just under a different brand.
My first recommendation: Avoid any brands owned by EIG in 2018 – do that and you’ll be doing great!
I’ll recommend website and WordPress hosts that have proven to work well for podcasters and bloggers. I have personally used all but two of them.
The prices tend to vary by how many resources they allocate to you and how many additional features are included. Things that tend to increase the price and performance are RAM, CPU, SSD vs HDD, CDNs, staging sites, WordPress optimization, and more.
I have found that a little extra cost not only allows your site to handle more users but also makes it easier to manage, saving you time.
Most people reading this will want managed WordPress hosting, meaning that the hosting company handles all the confusing server stuff. What’s important is that they keep your server online and loading fast. Several of the web hosts below offer both standard hosting and managed hosting. I’ll highlight the different tiers where it makes sense. [Read more…] about Best WordPress Hosting Sites For Podcasters & Bloggers 2018

There are quite a few different audio editing programs that will work to edit podcasts, but we’re just going to focus on the best podcast recording and editing programs.
That just means they’re either easier to use or focus more on spoken audio editing versus music production.
Most software for podcast editing works on both macOS and Windows, but there are a couple that are Apple only because they created the software. [Read more…] about Best Podcast Recording Software (For Mac & PC) 2018
