Tutorial: Editing Podcasts In Audacity

When clients hire me to podcast like a pro the number two question – number one being “What should my podcast be about?” – is usually “how do I edit the podcast audio and get it ready for publishing?”  That’s totally understandable.  Audio production and mixing can be confusing with a steep learning curve if you’ve never worked with recording and editing software.  In this video, we walk through some basic audio editing steps and techniques in Audacity, a free digital audio workstation.  It doesn’t address everything as audio editing and mixing is a never-ending pursuit full of tricks, tips and tools that go further and further into detail when it comes to audio manipulation.  But it should serve to provide a foundation on the road to podcast production.  As always, for more details, questions and one-on-one instruction, please contact me via the contact form on the front page of the website.

Podcast Speaks!! April 29, 30 with Jane M Powers

 

PodcastSpeaks is almost here.  I can’t wait for this exciting 2-day event with the amazing Jane M Powers.

I met Jane last year at a Synapse meeting.  Our meeting was one of the serendipitous benefits to a new business culture full of online Zoom video meetings.  I know, I felt Zoom fatigue as much as anyone.  But after it had settled in, I started to wonder how we’d go back to the old normal.  I was meeting people from all over the world every week!

When Jane and I got together we found we not only had a lot of interests in common (the outdoors, mountain biking, an insatiable desire to constantly learn, low tolerance for b.s.), but that we possessed skill sets that complimented each other.  She was great a turning skills into money by jumping all-in and getting to the heart of people’s passions, and I was good at NONE of that.  Well, truth be told, my background in audio and recording, radio, creative services in the ad world, and the aforementioned insatiable desire to constantly learn fueled my interest in podcasts and podcasting.  I truly believe that podcasts are one of the greatest messaging, branding, self-discovery and lead generation tools available to businesses and non-profits.  And Jane agreed.  So we came together to offer PODCAST SPEAKS.

PodcastSpeaks is an online, virtual event being held April 29 and 30 to teach businesses how they can use podcasts to speak (literally!) directly to customers, potential customers, contemporaries, collaborators, sponsors and networkers.

If you’re a small business person, entrepreneur or anyone who wants to control the narrative surrounding their business, ask yourself a few questions:

Do you have a story, mission, movement, or message?

Are you passionate about growing a profitable business?

Would you like to effectively engage and connect with audiences?

Do you want to easily create lasting content?

Do you want to confidently convert 5 or 6-figures from every stage?

Do you want to successfully generate a stream of leads?

The answers are obvious.  Click here to make a fully refundable deposit to hold your space and attend this free event.

To hear more about the event, listen to this episode of The Good Eye Podcast with Jane as my guest.
