Do you vape? Do you know a lot of people who do? Maybe you’ve recently quit smoking in favor of vaping. If so, you’ve probably done your research. You probably know which vaping pens are top notch and which ones to avoid. You could probably write a review of your local vaping store and you probably have a handful of preferred vape juice flavors to recommend.

Why not put all of this knowledge and expertise to use?

All across the country, there are people just like you who are looking for information, recommendations and advice as they consider making the switch to vaping.

The timing is perfect for you to create a vaping podcast using Google Hangouts.

In the past, a lot of people have used Skype for podcasts that have an interview or roundtable component, but what if you could have the same stable, reliable video call quality but could also turn your vaping podcast into a live event that also streams to YouTube? You can do all of that with Google Hangouts.

Here is a step-by-step walk-through to begin your podcast.

First, you’ll need to connect your Google+ account with whichever YouTube channel you’ll be using for the podcast. Ideally, you’ll want either a dedicated channel for the podcast or at least a channel that has relevant vaping content for your viewers to browse.

Once those accounts have been connected, you’re ready to log into Google Hangout On Air, start broadcasting, and finally click “Go Live.”

That’s all it takes for you to start streaming your podcast to viewers all over the world. While you broadcast, YouTube will simultaneously record the entire podcast. When it’s finished, you’ll notice that YouTube will have recorded everything as an MP4. In order to get your recording into a format that is usable on a blog, simply export it as an MP3 and then you’ll be able to add an intro, graphic effects and show notes in the video editing software of your choice.

That’s really all you need to know to create a vaping podcast using Google Hangouts. With some dedication and hard work, you should quickly begin to accumulate viewers and subscribers!
