    You know I bought an H1N1 zoom recorder to start. I’ve just got to buckle down and learn to edit audio now.

    For all those about to start or just discovering Pat and his wealth of knowledge. I took his advice just over 2 years ago. Now have a podcast in the top 1% globally , over 3 million downloads and now its own app. You can not go wrong following his advice .

    Great video. Question should you post your video podcast on your youtube channel? I see linus tech tips does a WAN show and it seems to work for them. However I also see that many youtubers like yourself do not post the podcast on your channel? any ideas? Thanks for all the help!
