The Podcast Engineering Show

Technology Podcasts >

Each week we talk to active podcast engineers and go behind the scenes. We learn how they are getting things done - their equipment, their workflow, and some of their ultra-secret tricks! And along the way you'll hear solutions to common engineering issues. My background is in the world of music engineering and production. For years I had the honor of making records with famous artists and accumulating a ton of album credits. When I entered podcasting about 4 years ago, I noticed that most podcasters have very little or no audio engineering skills, which virtually cripples the quality of their sound from the very beginning. This show, and more so the Podcast Engineering School, will be changing that for thousands of podcasters.
