5. Cut out external noise. Make sure you turn off or divert all phones and computer sound alerts, the last thing you want is to record a perfect hour long session, only to have it interrupted by a new email alert! Also close your office window – lawn mowers, the neighbours dog or children in the garden all add background noise to your recording.
6. Get comfortable. Make sure your chair is comfortable and you are sitting comfortably, moving around while recording will be picked up so try and avoid it. Have a glass of water to hand and if you’re using a headset to record your podcast, I’d recommend a straw.
