I have recorded and edited over 130 episodes of my podcast so I know some things but this is a basically a list of things I use.
If you want to hear from actual professionals I recommend episode 200 of Upgrade.
- I record using a Blue Yeti. There are much better microphones available
- Call with Skype or Zoom
- Record my local audio plus Skype backup with Audio Hijack Pro
- Edit in GarageBand. It would probably be easier in Logic Pro but I'm not paying for it
- Edit metadata and chapters with Forecast
- Hosted with Simplecast
