In terms of equipment they’ll need the main thing is some kind of device they can record on with a program like GarageBand, LogicPro or Audacity – that can be an iPad/laptop/tablet etc (laptops are preferred, as they have the best editing capabilities). I’ll bring in a few different microphones to show them and give them an opportunity to use. They’ll also need to bring something to take notes with, an idea of what they’d like to podcast about and (obviously) water – cause they’ll be talking!
