Editing a podcast can be time consuming and frustrating. A particular challenge is when a podcast guest runs several words into each other and sentences don’t end cleanly. This is part of natural speech patterns but presents a problem when you’re trying to lift ‘clips’ out of a sentence, perhaps to use in an intro sequence. Or where the speaker goes on to talk about a separate topic and you need to ‘cut’ what they were saying at an earlier point.

Zooming in allows you to make precise edits but with words running into each other, you often end up with am audible ‘clipping’ sound making it obvious that the sentence has been cut. Comsteria’s podcast producer Colin Kelly shares a quick and simple tip to deal with this.
