How to start a podcast - Editing

This week we will unpack the process for editing your audio files and compiling your podcast. We focus Audacity, an open source and cross platform audio editor however the tips in here will work for most professional applications. As with our other episodes, we are focused on helping you get the MVP podcast up and running, so we don’t beat around the bush.

We will look at:

  • Audio editing software
  • Recording solo elements
  • File formats
  • Effects / Audio cleaning
  • Music
  • Intro and outro
  • Advertisements
  • Exporting
  • Show notes
  • Transcription

I’d encourage you to stick with me even if you intend to outsource podcast editing. This episode will give you a basic understanding of the workflow and the structure of a show so should make briefing in what you want much easier.
