The Audacity Bootcamp is a podcast for podcasters and a resource for creating great audio for our podcasts and videos.

My name is Mike Adams and I’m currently a podcast and video host, editor, and producer. My audio recording and production experience began in the mid-1990s and my podcasting career launched in March of 2015.

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.
