Newbie tips from the KATG podcasting queen, Chemda Khalili:
1. Try out the software first
“Start with no-risk options like Audacity and GarageBand, which are free and user-friendly. Neither of us are techies but we figured it out by just playing with it.”
2. Get Started
“Don’t overthink the process. Record one—or five—practice episodes. Listen back or send it to an asshole friend who will give an honest critique.”
3. Find Your People
“If you’re funny to your friends, you’re going to be funny to someone—and at any given time, there’s a vast, untapped audience to be found.”

There are many comedy podcasts but KEITH AND THE GIRL IS THE BEST! Seriously. It's free. Download a show and see for yourself. You'll be glad you did...
I've tried to listen to many different podcasts, but this is one of the few I've managed to stick with for years. Keith and the Girl is brutally funny and heartfelt. I love these guys.
Keith and the Girl is and are the best. I've been listening since 2008 and it has not lagged a second; the sound quality is spot on, the guests are amazing, and the interviews are probing/funny/interesting/informative/intelligent/shocking/heartfelt/gut wrenching/entertaining. Nobody compares. It has an active global community that has produced some of my own lifelong dearest friends. It's not just a podcast, it's a universe. Get in on it.
Keith and the Girl is the first podcast I listened to. It remains my favourite, even after listening to dozens of other shows. The business ambition they have makes for much better entertainment for fans, and they never disappoint with the guests they have and the topics they cover. Keith and Chemda provide different viewpoints about so many kinds of topics, which creates interesting discussion and enriches viewers. We don't always want "yes men". They make the listeners think, laugh, and escape from their everyday lives...all at the same time.
Why wouldn't you listen to two of the few people on the planet who were able to turn their creative pursuits into a business without ever selling out?
