I started a podcast and here’s why I’m doing it

Last week, a friend and I recorded our first episode of Hammercircuit. Hammercircuit is a podcast where we talk about philosophy, technology, and business. In this post, I’ll discuss my reasoning behind starting a podcast and the methods I will use.

Why start a podcast?

I and my friend have formed a habit of starting a deep discussion in our free time. It so happens that it intrigues our fellow students from time to time. We have been having these conversations for weeks now. we both came to the conclusion that we should record what we were saying.

A podcast can help shed new light on several topics from a new perspective. This perspective is often built from experience, age, location, and knowledge. For us, we create this new perspective by our age and experience.

His specific experience is hardware and mine software.


So I created the first podcast already. There definitely is room for improvement. You can view it at https://www.mixcloud.com/Hammercircuit/hammercircuit-pilot

To polish quality of the podcast, the methods I will use are

  • Preshow (Planning and key points)
  • Mic setup (Equidistant from both of us + pop filter)
  • Editing
  • Cross promotion

These are the general methods/procedure I will use in my podcast. These will be refined as the podcast continues.
