Hi there! My name is Aaron. I made this show to help people like you make a great podcast. If you're interested in learning about podcast production, storytelling, recording gear, growing an audience, getting better at communicating and speaking, overcoming the hurdles, connecting with your listeners, expanding your personal and professional network, and other things like that, this is the show for you. Since 2012, I've been lucky enough to work with many great podcasts, including shows from Dribbble, seanwes, 5by5, SVS Learn, Shoptalk, CodePen, and more. This show contains nearly everything I've learned about podcasting in the past 10 years, and I'm still making updates and new episodes as I learn more. Thanks for listening, and happy podcasting!
I’ve been watching an online audio mastering course on Creative Live called DIY Mastering (by Jesse Cannon). In it, he was talking about how he always checks his work on cheap speakers and Apple earbuds, since that’s what most people use to listen to music. It got me thinking about the importance of good headphones, and how much they really matter. Are expensive headphones really necessary for mixing podcasts? Do you really need the best gear to make great work, or are you just procrastinating? My goal for this episode is to encourage you to do more with what you have and not fall into the trap of believing that better gear is the secret to success.
