We immediately start chatting about audio quality, what it takes to get to a final product that sounds good, and how it doesn’t have to do with a microphone (sometimes). The #WomenOfColorPodcastToo uprising through Spotify’s #SoundUpBootcamp! Amazing! Touching base on the goings on with Google and podcasting, Pocketcasts, and some new IAB launching Ads.txt

Speakpipe message! Or you can email We look forward to hearing from you


Super Quick Re-cap!

  • Elsie is back home! What’s worse, crappy mic or crappy internet
  • The iPhone 8 microphone is pretty awesome!
  • If you have awesome microphone technique and the best possible recording space given your circumstances, Auphonic will save the day!
  • We have become a giant science experience from the worst possible situations!
  • Do you agree? When you press stop after recording the ‘suck’ begins
  • It feels great when you finally finished editing your show!
  • 11:55 Danny Ozment from Emerald City Productions tells us that poor quality audio will push people away!
  • 13:47 NEWS
  • Jess just got an email about the IAB launching Ads.txt – breaking news
  • Why we often don’t cover the actual news because well, we have an organic flow people!
  • Spotify Sound Up Bootcamp, peeps! This movement is aaaammaaaazing!
  • 18 thousand women of color applied to The Sound Up Bootcamp!
  • Dude, not everyone is in ONE place, duh
  • The incredible organic way in which two hashtags took on a life on their own #SoundUpBootcamp #WomenOfColorPodcastToo
  • Of course we need representation but the next problem is where are my people, aka our listeners
  • This goes beyond the podcasting space, beyond metrics, beyond advertising and requires initiatives to address consumption and listener issues
  • So if the majority of podcast listeners are earning 75k and above and have a 4 year university degree, what are we going to do to reach the rest?
  • How do we keep the capital still coming in, reaching audiences and get creative in using that money?
  • Google is asking us to do some interesting things to make sure that your website is optimized to showcase your podcast!
  • You guys Pocketcasts was bought, woah
  • Barbara Corcoran has a new show called Business Unusual! Shark Tank diving into the scene!
  • OMGosh! Jess will be in NY doing a podcast meet-up!
  • Red Table Talks! And Elsie loves it!
