Welcome to episode 13 of the Audacity Bootcamp Podcast. I’m back from a month long road trip and while I was gone, I started hearing and reading concerns over Audacity becoming spyware under its new ownership. Also today, April 26, 2021, a new version of Audacity (3.0.3) was released. Coincidence? Let’s talk.
Welcome to episode 12 of The Audacity Bootcamp Podcast. This episode is a shameless plug for my online, on-demand video course, Audacity Bootcamp: Beginner to Advanced. If you’re interested in diving deep into Audacity and learning things about Audacity that will give you advanced editing skills and techniques, in addition to greater confidence with Audacity, consider enrolling in my course. It’s 6+ hours of video instruction that, like the title suggests, will take you from beginning concepts to advanced topics that can be hard to find elsewhere. Plus, I’ve priced it incredibly low on purpose to fit any budget.

Welcome to episode 10 of The Audacity Bootcamp Podcast. I’ve reached double digits. Yay! One of the bad raps Audacity gets is that editing in Audacity is destructive. That simply means that once you edit and/or put an effect on your Audacity project and then save and close the project, the edits you just did, along with the effects you just put on it, are permanent and can’t be removed. This is referred to as destructive editing.
But did you know that non-destructive editing can be done in Audacity? Version 3.0.0 of Audacity introduced a new feature called Project Backup. In this episode, I explain how I use Project Backup as a way to eliminate destructive editing in Audacity. It’s easy and it works!
Today on the Audacity Bootcamp Podcast, I point you to an interview I had the privilege of being a part of, on the Red Podcast – The Marketing Podcast for Experts, hosted by David Hooper. David asked me to come on his show and talk about my philosophy of podcasting and what’s important to me in the audio podcasts I do, as well as my videos.
We talked about a number of topics including my on demand video course, Audacity Bootcamp: Beginner to Advanced. In addition to the Red Podcast, David also hosts the Build a Big Podcast. Check them out when you get a chance. Links to both are below.

If you do Loudness Leveling on your podcast (and I hope you do), is that the same as volume level? Are loudness and volume the same thing? That’s the topic for this video as we look at the difference between loudness and volume when it comes to leveling our audio to a LUFS standard.
