If you're looking for hints and tips on how to improve the quality of your recordings, there are some great free podcasts out there that cover the basics. I've linked to the websites of some below. Most of these sites have links to iTunes so you can subscribe and get new episodes as they become available.
The daddy of them all was Ryan Canestro and Jon Tidey's the Home Recording Show, which ran until 2015. They covered lots of useful subjects and while the gear references aren't up to date, you'll still get a lot out of each episode. All episodes are archived on the site, so you can still download them from
My current favourite is the Simply Recording Podcast, which is very much aimed at beginners. Each week tackles one subject in detail and follows up with a quick tip for improving your mixes. The podcast is fast and punchy - there's very little waffle and Joe Gilder and Graham Cochrane just get on with it. They're fun to listen too, too.
Through Joe and Graham I've started listening to Dave Pensado's podcast (each episode is also available - with video - on YouTube). He's a Grammy-winning mixer who shares his entire work process so you can understand what it is that he does. He also gets in some really interesting guests...
You may also want to swing by:
Kevin Ward's Mix Coach - another podcast namechecked by the Simply Recording guys. Each episode is short - they rarely run past ten minutes. (Edit: after listening to a good forty of these podcasts, I can't really recommend them. They're often rambling and unfocused and you aren't going to learn anything that isn't covered elsewhere.)
The Audio Skills podcast - again, general advice aimed at making your home recordings sound "radio ready"
Kern Ramsdell's Home Recording Weekly - Kern can meander a bit, so each episode runs to an hour or so but there's good stuff here.
