And then there’s all the stuff you don’t know you don’t know…
I remember the very first time I edited a podcast episode. It took me… wait for it… SIXTEEN HOURS. Yup.
I was in STRUGGLE town.
I knew this could not go on. So I trawled the internet, looking for Audacity tutorials that explained how to record and edit in plain and simple terms.
I wasted hours and hours of my time, staring at those blue wave forms, pulling out my hair, wondering what the heck I was doing wrong and why my audio didn’t sound any good.
Two years on and 50+ episodes later, I’ve finally nailed this whole recording and editing thing down.
