First Person Audio is a resource for podcasters, podcast editors, and podcast producers. It’s a guide for good voice recording and editing. The newest addition to First Person Audio is the Audacity Bootcamp podcast! The podcast officially launched on April 2, 2021 and is available on your favorite podcast app or on the web right here at:

In addition to posts I make here, I offer an on-line course for Audacity podcasters, podcast editors, and producers. This best-seller course consists of 7+ hours of on-demand video lectures, hosted at Udemy. Audacity Bootcamp: Beginner to Advanced is for Audacity users at any skill level. As the title suggests, it takes students from beginner topics to advanced editing skills through how-to videos with plenty of examples.

What students are saying:

  • “Excellent course! I’ve been podcasting for a couple of years now, and I’ve sort of learned how to deal with Audacity as I went along. This course was exactly what I was looking for when I decided to invest some time to really master the software and better the quality of my audio. Mike is a great instructor and his explanations are perfectly clear. This is the course everybody interested in Audacity should take.” -MS
  • “This course was useful from start to finish. I had watched a lot of videos and read a lot of forums on how to use Audacity, but this course blew everything else out of the water. Mike makes everything very clear and easy to understand. I thought that I would work on editing my podcast while I was taking this class, but I quickly realized that I would have a much higher quality product if I waited until I was finished. I didn’t feel like any of the lessons were fluff or difficult to understand. AND I think that I will be a much better editor, which is ultimately the goal.” -SS
  • “This course was fantastic! This is the best course on Audacity that I have taken on Udemy. Mike has very clear and easy-going style. The lessons are short and to-the-point, no fluff, and full of content.” -SJ
  • “One of the best teachers I have had on Udemy. Thank you” -KC
  • “This has many useful lessons. We have already solved the problems I was running into. My recordings already sound better!” -DM
  • “First Class presentation. Each lesson clearly explained and accompanied by excellent video and audio content. I have learned a lot about Audacity and would recommend this course to anyone wishing to know more about the Audacity program.” -JM
