  • Audacity – is a powerful audio recording and editing software. If you’re on a budget, this is a great place to start. Adobe Audition is another great one but you have to pay for that.
  • Levelator – is the desktop audio tool that brings your levels up to a satisfactory gain on a .wav file. It is like a granddaddy but it is not as sophisticated as Auphonic.
  • DraftIn – allows you to draft your work and collaborate with other writers. Love writing? this is for you. I use it to save my frequently used writing templates. It works really well.
  • Feedly – is my RSS feed reader. After Google Reader shut down I needed something else and Feedly made a lot of changes and openly welcomed all of the Google Reader folks.
  • Google Docs – the office suite by Google, where my show notes are done and looked at while I’m recording. I use the word app more than anything else. It works really well.
  • Hotshots – I usually cut my own pics when I’m setting up a featured image, and its with this screen capturing tool right here.
  • MP3 Skype Recorder – is my Skype recording software and it exports in MP3 only. It is my default Skype recording tool.
  • Pocket – allows you to save articles and read them later. I typically use Pocket for somewhat evergreen content that I plan to revisit.
  • Pocketcasts – this one is more for the listening end of things. Pocketcasts is the app that I use to catch up on all of the shows that I subscribe to.
  • Skype – is the communication tool when I have guests on my show. Skype works well, just make sure you do a Skype test call to get the best upstream before you record.
  • Uber Conference – allows you to make conference calls for free. You can even have the option to record the call as mp3 by completely filling out your profile.

    Great idea to share your toolbox! Wish most people did it too.
    Ill try Pocketcast straight away. Right now i listen to your show through Podkicker, which is precisely where i found your podcasts.
    By the way you are doing a great job man. Way to go! I liked a lot the interview with godfree and the previous podcast with the review of the astros. You just got a new listener man! Cheers!
