Episode one is up and has been submitted so it should appear in Apple podcasts soon.
Will it appear on Spotify? It will NOT. I immediately got a take down notice from them. They weren’t specific but I assume it’s because the episode is mostly music, and they want you to upload music as singles/albums, not podcasts. This is why platforms are bad. What’s it to them how much talking vs music is in my podcast? That’s for me to decide, not them. Dumb.
So anyways who cares about Spotify.
Immediate learnings/things I need to understand better:
- clipping noises in the vocals. must be an easy way to avoid that.
- controlling volume. the 2nd piece I did as an intro seemed waaay louder than the song. how? why? what do I do about that? even with normalization it seemed off.
- my audacity macros seem to take a little of the life/shine out of the music. how & why is that happening.
Anyways that’s that, onward.
