I am running into more people who say things like, “I'll start my podcast as soon as (event),” or “As soon as I get (a piece of gear).” In some cases, they have been waiting for YEARS. So today I'm going to pull back the curtain a bit and show you how a podcast doesn't have to be perfect (as I leave in things I normally might remove)

I Had the Wrong Country in An Episode
I had typos in a blog post (due to multiple tabs)
Leave some “Margin” in your life so you can pivot.
Have at least one episode recorded and ready to go.
Replace your file with a new repaired file. with the exact file name.
If you're using Dynamic content, make sure your volume levels are consistent.
Spotify only uses mp3 files (so don't upload an m4a file). I recommend 128 kbps stereo mp3.
RX10 Is Released
This software has tools to clean up audio. We play “bad” audio and their “enhanced version” and again I say, sure this audio was somewhat shrill. I'm not sure spending $800 is worth the results. If you listen, there isn't a TON of difference.

You don't need this software to create a podcast. If you record things with a decent microphone, in a quiet area, you are probably “good enough.”
I'm not saying that you can do “whatever you want.” Again, you are aiming at perfection but you land on “Very good.”
