Have you been thinking about starting your own podcast? It's easier than you think!
Why We Started Our Podcast
When we decided to start the Spanglish Podcast, we were clueless as to where to begin. But doing something like podcasting had been a dream of ours since we were kids; we just didn’t know it was so accessible. I remember we used to play that we were radio hosts, and we even had our own radio station called “La Pierna Pelúa,” which in English means The Hairy Leg. I’m not entirely sure why that was the name we chose for it, but it might’ve been because we were both very hairy (thanks, Italian genes). Fast-forward to 20 years later, and here we are! When it came down to it, we knew we had a unique but also relatable life (we’re immigrants, women, and entrepreneurs) and wanted to share it with the world!
How We Started
Honestly, we had no idea how to start our podcast or what equipment and/or softwares to use. All of the articles I read and videos I watched on Youtube said that investing in a quality microphone and software was a must. At the time, neither one of us had the resources to buy those things, so that’s when Anchor came into the picture.
We heard about Anchor from our brother in law who’d been using the app for his own podcast. So, we looked it up, and we were surprised at how easy it was to use. We use Anchor to record, edit, and distribute the episodes to multiple listening platforms including Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, and others. And the best part of it is that the only equipment we use is our iPhones. Not only is the app user-friendly, but it is also completely free! They’ve also paired us with brands that sponsor our episodes, and it has honestly been such a blast.

My hope for writing this blog post is to encourage those of you who’ve been thinking about starting a podcast but haven’t because of a lack of economic resources. I’m telling you today, you don’t need a fancy mic to start your podcast!
