  1. At the end of the podcast Sam asks Joseph what software he and his co-hosts are using. Joseph answered Garage Band. While GB is an amazing product, the software I am currently using Descript and I find it to be a great way to go. In my opinion, what makes it better than GB is how you can edit the podcast from the text of what’s being said. Just like a Google doc. With GB you need to use the wav file to find your way. Also there are lots of new for improving the effects and the sound quality. Anyway, that’s my two cents. Hope it helps!
