Let’s know what podcasting is:
Podcasting is now a trending audio or video file for listeners or viewers. We call it next generation radio also. But a radio broadcast its audio through transmitter with its fixed waves, such as shortwaves medium waves or FM. Here podcast is nothing like that kind of radio. It keeps your files in its server. (know what is a server clicking here)
A podcaster makes audio and uploads it into server. Users or listeners can listen this audio anytime according to their preferable situation. Podcasters also make their audio any time any situation and even upload any time into their server.
These audios naturally are episodic audio or may not be episodic. If the audio is dramatic story of novel, historic or detective then it should serially episodic. Otherwise you may choose your niche whatever you are very strong or whatever you are passionate for the niche.
Definition of podcasting:
Podcast is episode audio may be video of individual file from where user can download and listen.
The word podcast stands for bonding the two different words. They are ‘pod’ from iPod and ‘cast’ from casting.
In early 2000 Adam Carryi collaboration with Dave Winer delivered and sync textual content content to portable audio player that is how the podcast app works. IPODDEX was the first App.
If you are a listener you can directly listen any podcast from any device connected with.. internet. You can download the audio file after connecting internet and can listen in your leisure period.

Then you have to need a sound editing software. After recording of your voice the file has to be edited. Without editing the sound may not sweet audible. Although it is your choice what type of sound you like to upload. I think recording file software needed because there may have external noise extra recording. So edit your recorded voice.

There are many sound editing software in the market. But I highly recommend for desktop for laptop that is Audacity. This software is free. No investment required, no licence required. It provides creative commons licence which is free to use.
