During these extraordinary times, people are launching podcasts at an unprecedented rate. According to, almost 183,000 new podcasts have gone up since the beginning of the year, with the last two months accounting for a significant majority of those. If you’re just getting started, interested in hopping on the bandwagon, or celebrating your 100th episode, Adobe Audition is the best software you can use to create your podcast.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be posting some resources to help navigate the world of audio content creation. In this post, we’re featuring the Podcaster Survival Guide series on YouTube from Mark Edward Lewis of Cinema Sound. I love that he broke the tutorials into short, topical episodes within four distinct workflow chapters: Record, Fix, Edit, and Mix. I hope you enjoy these as much as I have.

The full 50-video “Podcaster Survival Guide” playlist can be found here.

In chapter two, Mark goes deeper with recording and advanced tactics:

Chapter three covers everything you need to know to fix audio:

Next up, chapter four dives into editing:

And last but certainly not least, chapter five is all about mixing:

Now, that’s a lot of content — but if you want even more, Mark has some tutorials that can be found right in Adobe Audition. With the desktop app open, choose Help, then Adobe Learn in the drop-down menu.

Have fun creating! We can’t wait to hear what you make. #AdobeAudition
