New Tech Removes “Ums” From Your Audio, Airline Adds Podcasts To In-Flight Entertainment, Resources to Support New Podcasters, and More.


Show notes: 

The podcast industry is rapidly growing, so Sounder is making it easy for audio creators to stay on top of it all with a weekly podcast called This Week In Podcasting, where we discuss this week’s most exciting podcasting news and tips, all in under 10 minutes.

Episode 14 is chock-full of hacks for new and seasoned podcasters.

Like, wouldn’t it be cool if you could edit out the “uhs” and “ums” from your podcast? Well, Project Sound Seek, a tech tool featured at the Adobe Max Sneaks 2019, event can do just that. “It’s like the Photoshop Magic Wand, but for sound,” says creator Justin Salamon (@justin_salamon on Twitter).

For beginners, our resource round-up includes a brand new book titled Pod Life, a collection of motivating, funny, and insightful stories from a wide range of podcast hosts, like James Wylder (@arcbeatle on Twitter) host of Tales by the Blue Light.

As well as a friendly, comprehensive video series titled Podcasting 101 that Google and PRX created to support early-stage podcasters in everything from recording to scriptwriting to monetizing. Learn from experienced podcast hosts Luvvie Ajayi of the Rants & Randomness and Jesus & Jollof podcasts and Sean Rameswaram, host of Vox Media’s daily news podcast Today, Explained.

You can also take comfort in listening to last week’s episode of School of Podcasting, where host David Jackson (@davidjackson on social) asks fellow podcaster’s their biggest regrets when starting a podcast, so maybe you don’t have to live them yourself.

Other fun podcasting news includes: which satirical news brand will be available in audio come January, and which airline is getting hip with their in-flight entertainment.

Oh, and the US is the largest market for podcasts. Can you guess which country is number two?

That’s all for this week!
