The amount of edi=ng
you do is somewhat determined by the personality you want your podcast to have. We want our podcasts to be authen=c and do light edi=ng to achieve this. At a Minimum: Make sure guests and hosts are at the same audio level. We use Levelator for this. Cut out obvious delays and mistakes. Insert pre-recorded opens and closes. We use Audiobag for this. Insert your commercials into your show.
Once your show is ready
to be heard, add it to your hos=ng pla[orm. We use Podbean for Social Pros and Libsyn for Content Pros. Once there, shows automatically go into feeds on iTunes and aggregators like Stitcher.
Tip: Upload your ﬁnished audio
to Speechpad, a word-for-word transcription service that charges $1/minute. Trust us, it’ll make the next step much easier.
