Frankly, Graham does the hard work of finding the guests and interviewing them. He came to the podcast already with great recording equipment, so my job is merely to put the thing together. I worked initially with Graham on finding the right theme music, establishing a tone and generally getting the feel of the show right.
I also maintain the podcast’s website, which uses my open-source Podiant podcasting theme for WordPress.
What I do for Graham is take each session’s recordings, which typically involve two lapel miss and a third which picks up atoms, and acts as a backup should we need it. I pan the voices, edit out any fluff and add in Graham’s closing, middle and closing monologues. It’s packaged together with music and exported out as an MP3.
Once the audio is uploaded to our cloud storage area, I write the content for the post, adding links and metadata, and schedule for publishing. I also deal with the odd technical enquiry and help contribute content for the podcast’s FAQ page.
