Back up and running with a new season – Editing decisions



After the move to California I’m finally able to get a new episode up. Episode 30 will be from the Capsule Show and features Conrad Bradford. I’m in the process of making an editorial decision here. If you can comment below and let me know what you think.

I’ve decided to shorten the podcast to be between 30 and 40 minutes, and in this episode I interviewed the first three people before Conrad showed up. When Conrad arrived I gave him a very directional microphone: a Sennheiser MD 431 II. In our first interview he kept aiming the mic at the ceiling between himself and the speaker. If I had given him the usual EV 50nd that would have been fine. But be that as it was now I have to make the decision whether to keep the interview. There is a lot of background noise but the interview is reasonably interesting. It’s with a hat maker. What do you think? I’m inclined to leave the interview in. I usually only cut out an interview if it’s really bad and this one is boarder line.
