Section 1: Introduction

In the introduction video I talk about what you can expect from my course plus I give you several equipment ideas.


In the pre-recording section I detail my pre-recording routine and give you tips that will help you get a clean consistent sound for your podcast.


In the recording video I talk about some of the basics that you must have covered before you hit record. I explain why I prefer to record in WAV and how I recover from verbal mistakes during recording. I throw in some tips for making it easy to find where you have made mistakes in your audio so they are easy to edit later in post production.


In this video I give suggestions on equipment and tactics that may help you avoid carpal tunnel among other problems that audio editors face. I also divulge the pace I have set for myself when it comes to doing a full playback and edit. If you value your hand/arm health, you'll want to tune into this video.


In this video I share why I will never listen to my podcast through my computer speakers while editing. I also talk about mapping hot keys in order to speed up (and balance out) the editing process. Find out how you can get a free multitrack audio editor and why that might be important.


In editing 1, I talk about leveling your audio's volume using various techniques, plus match volume and more.


In part 1 of the editing videos I talk about reducing your noise floor, adding gain, removing long pauses automatically, eliminating plosives (p-pops), combating fricatives, removing clicks/pops, and more.


This video is a continuation of the Editing Part 1 video. I continue to discuss tips for removing some of the most annoying problems a podcast recording can face.


In the final video of the editing portion of this series I talk about adding silence, mixing music with your voice, batch processing, lining up multiple tracks, and more.


In this video I talk about the proposed podcast loudness standard, compression, listener fatigue, adding bass in post production, and more.


This video deals with saving your audio file. I'll talk about saving in mono versus stereo, sample rate, bit rate, format settings, encoding, and more.


In the final video, I share my own personal workflow with you.
