Thanks to my listener Yoshi, who told me that the backing music I had added to the podcast while I spoke was distracting. So, I went back to other podcasts I listen to occasionally to hear what they did… and none of them use backing tracks.
So, it’s gone – but I have added a soundproofing screen behind my microphone, pulled it up off my desk on a short stand that came with the screen, and may also play with an external pop screen that came with the kit. That should hopefully get rid of some of the distracting noises and make the actual audio stand out more.
Thanks, Yoshi! And remember, if there is something you like, don’t like, would like to hear, etc. about Mr. Watchlist’s DesigNation, please don’t be shy to tell me here. And, as I say every episode, ratings and reviews would be greatly appreciated.
