Today on the show, we’re speaking with Tahlee Rouillon. Tahlee is a music composer extraordinaire at Sonesence. She offers peace seekers an easy way to achieve instant calm with a sonic shortcut called meditones. She also creates bespoke meditation music for other wellness entrepreneurs.

I’ve invited Tahlee to chat with us about sound quality in our podcast recordings. I know sound quality has always been a struggle for me. There’s a LOT of technical babble out there and it’s really hard to know what’s important and what’s not so important in the land of sound.

Because Tahlee works with women to create beautiful and professionally produced spoken-word meditations, I knew she’d have some really useful tips for getting the best sound quality for our recordings.

Listen in as Tahlee and I explore 9 really simple tips for creating podcast sound-quality awesomeness.
