Please describe your podcast and why you thought it would be a good topic to have a podcast on.
Pod on the Quad covers a little bit of everything: students, faculty and alumni who have done interesting things.

How has the podcast changed since the first show? What are some things you’ve learned and done to make it better?
Pacing, editing and sound quality have improved as the students figured out the best way to conduct interviews.

What tools do you use to record, edit and publish your podcast?
Yeti mic. GarageBand to edit. Post on SoundCloud

What advice do you have for others looking to make a podcast?
Don’t wait. Start recording. But keep those first few episodes short until you figure out what you want to be. Long episodes (30+ minutes better be amazing or no one will listen).
