The Fix Podcast
Dr Michelle King is a bestselling author who is an expert in organisational cultures. Frustrated with inequality in the workplace, she wanted to create a weekly podcast that centred on female empowerment in the workplace and how people can achieve success whilst authentically being themselves. In the wake of her second book ‘How Work Works’, Michelle wanted each episode to delve into topics explored in print and host guests to help navigate through the struggle to find meaning and fulfillment in the workplace.
To create this podcast, Michelle records her audio independently from us and we receive an audio file each week so that we can begin the editing process. The first step is to EQ the audio levels to ensure that it sounds as high quality as possible. Whilst referencing the episode’s transcript provided by Michelle, we then removed anything that would deter the listener from the flow of the conversation.
There is an added complexity with the audio of the guest on that week’s episode as this means that there will be an additional audio track as two microphones are used. If the guest is joining Michelle virtually, we then have to edit out the delay caused by this. We sync up the audio tracks and remove the audio of Michelle when her guest is speaking and vice versa.
Both us and Michelle are very pleased with the result of the podcast each week. It has been extremely successful and has gained over 192,000 downloads so far. The Fix has hosted a range of guests from different backgrounds with varying expertise. Some notable examples include fashion photographer Nigel Barker, Iceland’s Prime Minister Katrín Jakobsdóttir and actor Sarah Jessica Parker.
The combination of Michelle’s fabulous ability to host, her interesting guests and our work to edit has created a very successful podcast.
