How powerful does a laptop need to be to edit audio? My laptop is going to repairs for a few weeks and I'm thinking of buying a cheap (under $200) laptop to cover my basic needs like surfing and streaming in the meantime. While I obviously won't be able to edit video or even photos heavily, will I be able to edit a full-fledged podcast?

+Johan Dahlberg Many factors in editing. I have yet to see a computer of today not handle it - if you buy a standard brand machine. Processor, sound card, memory inside are all factors. Once again, we surpassed minimum requirements a while ago. Unless you are recording more than 4 tracks...

Hey! I'm new to this and need some general pointers and encouragement. I've yet to start, but I have ordered my first mic and am ready to start recording soon! I've done a ton of research.

My problem? Two of the main points that most tips and how-to articles bring up: have a co-host or do interviews (solo podcasts are harder to make engaging), and have a niche. I lack both.

The podcast is for an interview blog that I run (www.thelongforminterviewer.com), where once a week I post a longform interview about any subject (space travel, cancer survivors, religion, you name it). It makes it hard to have a dedicated following because the common theme is the interviews and style, not the topics. It's for curious people, basically, but it takes more effort to have people "get that" :P

In my podcast I will talk about a new theme every week. I will start each episode by reading one of my interviews, then have segments where I discuss the content. Deeper analysis, highlighting interesting/funny quotes from the interview, maybe comments about my interactions with the interviewed person.

It's a complement to the already published interviews, but I also want it to work as a stand-alone podcast. You don't have to follow the blog to "get" or enjoy the podcast.

Since the interviews have already been done, I won't be interviewing anyone on the podcast. And frankly, even though I could get in touch with the interviewed again and have a Skype conversation, I don't think I want to. It will be a solo podcast! It's that or no podcast at all :)

How can I make this work? Is it a good/bad idea? Would you follow a show like that? Do you have any suggestions for the format/segments? How can I make it interesting and not just some random guy talking rambling about random topics?

I personally love the idea - which is important (the passion and commitment) - but I fear I will screw up the format and the podcast will be greatly overlooked because of the lack of a niche. At least on the blog (which struggles with the same non-theme issue) search engines will find each individual interview.

Thanks for any ideas, feedback or comments :D

+Drew Royster Thanks! Currently I've scripted the shit out of my first episode as I'm afraid I'd be rambling otherwise, but you make a fair point! I'll try to find a balance :) Thanks!

Love this guy! :D
This is the inspiring story of Tim Harris, a man who has down syndrome and owns the “worlds friendliest restaurant”. Tim opens up about battling bullies and the importance of hugging.
