When you first start podcasting or are looking to improve, there are a number of things you can do to really make it feel and sound professional; you can focus on your niche, publish episodes regularly, use the right gear, get the right audio-editing software, as well as use music and effects.

Today we’ll focus on the ways different podcasters have used music throughout their content.

What’s the first and most recurring struggle for independent podcasters? Finding great, royalty-free music, sound effects, and jingles at a good price.

Background music and sound effects are key to polishing up any show and provide each episode dimension and structure, adding emphasis to important moments in your story or interview. And, of course, you’re not looking for just any license-free music, but an endless resource of it that you’ll actually want to use.

Why you need a royalty-free library for your podcast:

3 Gardening Podcasts

Is there anything more gratifying than a beautiful personal garden? As someone who masters the art of gardening better than writing this blog post, “July means the start of summer holiday and a new rich colour palette, as dahlias, agapanthus and cosmos come into flower.” It’s that time of year when you can enjoy your free time in your garden, filling it with colorful flowers and plants. But, what if you’re a beginner, or don’t feel like a real pro?

So, get to your garden, tune in to these podcasts, and sunbathe until you’ve learned what to do. You can start gardening with an unbeatable tan! Perfect plan! (But don’t forget to use sunscreen!)

How to Start Coding on Android If You’re an iGuy

If you care about users enjoying your service from their mobile devices, then you should ask yourself: is it enough or necessary to make an amazing responsive website to answer their needs? Probably not. So you go ahead and build a great iOS app version of the website. But is that enough?

Well, not exactly, since there are currently more Android than iOS devices out there in the world, so it’s much more sensible to release an Android app even before creating one for iOS. All this summarizes the main reasons why I decided that I needed to learn how to build an Android app. Plus it forced me work from a different perspective, allowing me to grow my knowledge as a developer so much that I decided to apply what I learned back to our iOS development.

And so, the journey begins

How to Sync Skype with Spreaker Studio for Desktop

As every podcaster already knows, tackling a topic from different points of view is a sure way to bring the quality of his or her content to a higher level. However, having different points of view usually means more voices to manage, with co-hosts and guests weighing in on your discussion. It can’t be said enough that mastering an excellent podcast interview or steering a heated conversation already requires good speaking skills, experience, organization, and the right equipment.

So what happens when you’re not all in the same place? Maybe your co-host is live-streaming right from the location you’re covering (like a sports match), or you work remotely (like we do at Spreaker, by the way), or, more often than not, the expert that you want to interview can’t get to your studio. In that case, the best solution is to use Skype, and with Spreaker Studio for Desktop it’s very easy to set up.

What’s going on with our iOS apps

In the past few weeks we’ve been pushing out some new releases to our iOS Apps; some of you have reached out because they couldn’t find the statistics screen on the Spreaker Podcast Radio app anymore.

As of now, listener analytics are only displayed on Spreaker Studio and this means that if you are a content producer you should have already downloaded the Spreaker Studio App for iOS in order to access your stats. In a few months (we can’t reveal the date just yet) we’ll be launching a complete renewal of Spreaker Podcast Radio App for iOS which will give users a much better podcast listening experience, like we already did on Android.
