In this second episode, I talk about the positive response to the 1st episode, planning my SXSW schedule, streamlining and improving the process of producing this podcast with GarageBand, and getting my analog and digital tools organized.
GarageBand is wonderful for producing podcasts. It's simple, yet offers many features to streamline the process. I can record audio and filter it to sound better on one layer (you can hear the difference comparing episodes 01 and 02), drop the intro and exit music on 2 separate layers, and then embed an image and add text on a fourth metadata layer. It's like Photoshop for audio!
Once everything is tuned and organized, I can simply generate an combined MP3 file to the desktop or iTunes, ready for putting on the server. Awesome!
Thanks for your feedback. The podcasts are going over well. Look for episode 03 to be released the week I leave for SXSW — keep the feedback coming!
