Leo Lopes also wrote a book, the “Podcast: guia básico” (Podcast: basic guide) that talks about different topics related to podcasts.
The book helped me to choose the Cyberpunk topic for my podcast, it was inspired in an RPG podcast (Nerdcast Cyberpunk) and I tought that doing a project in this topic would help me learn.

The book also helped me to choose the equipment and software do record and edit my podcast. I used a lapel microphone, because I also want to record videos with the same microphone.

In the edition chapter of the book I understood how to schedule my project and how to put all parts together. I also understood what is important and what can be deleted from the main project. The author also mentions how to remove noise and how to record with less noise. The music was chosen accordingly to the book’s orientations: musics without lyrics are better, because they help the user concentrating in the content of the podcast; it’s better if the music is related to the topic of the podcast.

The book also introduces some of the programs that can be used to edit podcasts, I choose to work with Adobe Audition.

The book can be bought from the following link:

When I started editing, I was editing every single part, compiling it, then putting it together with other parts. That was making the multitracks hard to understand and change, then I learnt how to work better with effects in multiple tracks.
