My guest is Rob Walch, VP of Podcaster Relations for Libsyn, and host and/or producer of the following podcast shows:

We spoke in detail about Rob’s technical setup for each of his shows.

Along the way Rob had some great tips for all of us: (Listen to the episode for all the nitty-gritty)

  • Record your Skype audio on a different device instead of on the same computer which you’re using to Skype. Then there’s no risk of over-taxing that computer’s CPU
  • He loves his Marantz 660 digital recorder – rock solid
  • Sound Soap (plugin to clean up audio) – $150, works in GarageBand
  • When making Skype calls, the call will be smoother if the call is initiated from the person with the fastest internet connection
  • When linking to your show’s iTunes presence, there is a way to have your show open directly in the place where your listener can click ‘Subscribe.’ *Here are the steps:
    1. Append &LS=1 to your iTunes show URL
    2. Then create a Bitly link for that link
    3. Then use that Bitly link to promote your show in iTunes

BTW- try clicking the one of the two iTunes links in this post and see where it opens 😉

Also, while recording this episode we had a disconnection/crash of CAST, which we were using to connect and record. I am digging CAST and learning how to use it…….and how NOT to use it – like closing the tab of a session and then trying to get back to that session (which you can’t)

Thank you for being a great guest and helping us so much, Rob!

Listen to session #3 of The Podcast Engineering Show! Listen and Subscribe in Apple PodcastsSpotifyGoogle Play, iHeart RadioStitcher, TuneIn RadioAndroid, RSS.

My guest is Kate Astrakhan, Owner of Audio Adrenaline! Kate also hosts the Make Your Bed podcast. She has a ton of experience in radio and voiceovers – including that famous Greyhound commercial on which she sang, “Go Greyhound and leave the driving to us.”

We talk shop and discuss many audio/podcasting topics including:

  • Kate not using plugins
  • Her Misophonia (see below, it’s related to sound)
  • Her opinion on USB microphones
  • Her love of Behringer equipment
  • Super-detail editing
  • Adobe Audition

She also brought up an amazing use of a de-esser, and hopefully she will share that secret with us in the comments, etc.

*Here’s a bit about Misophonia: also known as selective sound sensitivity syndrome, starts with a trigger. It’s often an oral sound — the noise someone makes when they eat, breathe, chew, yawn, or whistle. Sometimes a small repetitive motion is the cause — someone fidgets, jostles you, or wiggles their foot.

Thank you, Kate!

We are here for you, so please comment below with any questions or remarks. Thanks for listening!

Here is session #2 of The Podcast Engineering Show! Listen and Subscribe in Apple PodcastsSpotifyGoogle Play, iHeart RadioStitcher, TuneIn RadioAndroid, RSS.

Luis Congdon admits that he’s not the most technical guy on the planet, but he’s been through several audio setups and he shared what he has learned through his production evolution.

He hosts the Lasting Love Connection podcast, and the Thriving Launch podcast.

His audio setup includes a Scarlett 2i2 audio interface and MXL microphones. He and his co-host record in the same room, so we talked about how he optimizes that sound.

These days he records into Logic Pro. Previously he tried recording with Ecamm recorder, Garage Band, and Adobe Audition, but he wasn’t satisfied with any of them.

He uses a Blue Yeti when he travels and he started the Podcasters Exchange Facebook group!

Thanks Luis!
