Podcast Liberation: Set Your Podcast Free

The Audacity Audio Editor: An Introduction

Our editing tool of choice on this course is Audacity. 

Audacity is a free tool, and it works on both PC and Mac. It’s also really powerful, and will do everything you ever need to do in podcasting editing. It’s pretty surprising how good Audacity is, to be honest, and that would apply even if this tool came at a modest cost!

One of the most popular alternatives is Garageband. It’s also free, but it’s Mac only, and the recent versions have become a little less feature-rich. Therefore, I’d recommend you go with Audacity if you have a choice.

So, the first job is to get Audacity set up on our computer.
