After a slight podfade (yes, it happens) the PodOn Podcast is back! Even though 2020 was a rough year for everyone, plenty of folks found the time and space to turn to their most creative side, as a result, a lot of podcasts emerged even in the middle of a pandemic. In today’s episode, Julian and TJ come back strong to talk about the magic of self editing. Let’s be real, editing grants you control, but it also demands time. Good news is, when it comes to editing, it is not black or white, there’s room for all of us to get comfortable! Listen now to know more about the pros and cons of self editing, the tools available in the market, and how to make the best decisions around your podcast’s needs.
Jump straight into:
(00:27) - In an ever growing industry, PodOn is back! - “22% increase of podcast creation year over year. That is on another level!”
(03:10) - The pros and cons of self editing - “The pros is that you have complete control over your episodes.”
(05:52) - What makes Descript into such a fantastic tool for self editors? - “It is very easy to the curious, scrappy podcaster, so you don’t need to know the heavy weight capabilities of a Digital Audio Workstation.”
(08:14) - On Descript’s features beyond editing - “It’s very hard to figure out the editing and then let alone the promotion of it, and so Descript allows you to do both out of one tool.”
(11:04) - On self editing and leaning on an editing team - “You want to put trust in those editors, but at the same time, by speaking their language you’ll get as close to the final product you’d like.”
