What Do I Do of This Horrible Audio From My Boring Podcast Guest?

You are going through the file of the interview you did a week ago and you notice:
1. The audio of the audience sounds horrible.

2. The guest is boring.

Today I showcase some tools that can help you save the audio, but only you can save the boring. In the end, if you let this audio get to your audience, it's YOUR BRAND (not the guest's) who takes the hit.

I Will be Learning Descript in the Future

I saw Descript in its very early stage and I thought, “This will never work” and that was years ago and technology has come a long, long way.

You can now have descript transcribe your show and when you delete the “um” in the text version it deletes it in the audio version. It also edits videos the same way. When I heard about the Sound Studio feature, I thought it might be cool, but instead, it's absolutely bananas.

Descript is equipping people with zero audio editing experience makes amazing sounding audio from recordings that are absolute crap.
Check out this quick video of me playing with the Sound studio

Quieting YOUR End of the Conversation

The fun part of meetings, podcasts, etc is LIFE if happening while we attend and create. This means the snowblower outside, the dog, the cat, etc is going to interrupt. Check out this video of Krisp as I clap while I talk, and Krisp removes the clapping.
