Let’s talk about Top and Tail Editing
No one expects you to dive into podcasting as a technical expert. If you are, that’s awesome, but the majority of us had no clue what we were doing when we started. Thankfully, there’s plenty of ways to do basic editing in a way that makes your show sound polished.
This episode is a short and sweet snippet from our Launch Accelerator program on podcast editing for beginners. In it, I break down all the tips and tricks to do the bare minimum of editing while still getting your show to sound awesome. This usually consists of “top and tail” editing. I define this for you and give you some basic instructions on how to get the most out of it. I also explain why it’s important to be aware of your strengths and how much you want to be involved in the editing process. We also talk about the importance of understanding how editing works, even if you’re not going to be doing it yourself. So if you’re feeling a little overwhelmed about how to set a framework for your podcast editing process, take a deep breath and listen up.
