Song Credits: The instrumental for “Sweet Creature” by Harry Styles was featured in this podcast.


I used Audacity for this project as well because I have become familiar with the set up and features on the software. I spent roughly two hours recording and editing the project so it took much less time this time around. I think the content of the podcast went really well because I focused on the main components of my essay as they were the most important so it very closely resembles the essay. I would probably change the volume of my voice now that I think about it or possibly have another person be my “interviewer” or something. I didn’t think this project was really suited for an interview so I went with the traditional podcast but it could have been a bit more spiced up if I included another person in there. The music could definitely be tweaked as well; I like the song choice because I did not want something obnoxiously loud or upbeat. If I had more time, I would definitely make sure my voice flowed throughout the podcast so it sounded natural and not completely edited. I also could have experimented with the music effects and seen which ones I liked best. One thing I wish could be fixed is to just have a link to the podcast instead of having to convert it to a YouTube video because it gets confused with a video.

  1. I really liked your podcast! You sounded very confident in what you were telling us about. I also couldn’t tell if you made it in one take or several, so that’s very good! It makes listening to it easier. I like the pieces of information you took from your essay and decided to use in this podcast. It flowed nicely. I also appreciate that you added some subtle background music to keep us engaged. There were some odd noised near the end of the video, so I would try to make sure that doesn’t happen next time. Other than that I didn’t notice any problems. Really nice job!!
