High School

You do not need a high school diploma to work as a podcaster, but graduating from high school is one of the best moves you can make in life. A high school diploma (or GED) will open many doors for you, including making you eligible to be admitted to college. High school courses that will be useful to you as a podcaster include computer science, English, and speech. Additionally, if you plan to create a podcast about a particular subject, you should take classes in that area. For example, if you plan to host a podcast about politics, you should take as many history, social studies, and government classes as you can. If you are interested in podcasting about the environment, you should take classes in earth science, biology, environmental science, and chemistry.
