I wanted to talk a little bit about podcast editing. So I decided NOT to edit myself on this episode :-). I did do some noise reduction, plosive removal and finished volume stuff. But that isn't really the bulk of editing. What really takes the time when editing a podcast is cutting out all of the ummms, ahhhs, ya-knows, and long pauses. Also people tend to repeat themselves a lot, and I (as an editor) usually cut those out as well.
But all that stuff was left in on my recording in this episode because I thought it would help illuminate what editing is by hearing when something isn't. I hope that made sense :-P.
