Listening to your podcast while you edit with headphones on might lead you to think your audio is just right. That everything sounds perfect. But what about the most important listener…your audience?
Make sure the audio you’re publishing sounds as good to your audience as it does to you. Take your podcast for a trial run on as many speakers you can find. Play your podcast in your car where a large number of people are listening on their commute. Can you hear it clearly over the traffic and other sounds inherent to driving?
Try your podcast on cheap earbuds that came with your mp3 player as well as the speakers on your computer, TV, and phone.
Testing your audio in as many places as possible will give you a good gauge of how your audience hears your podcast. Make sure what you’re publishing can actually be heard most places it might be played and you’ll keep your listeners coming back for more.
