Trade School Digbeth: Audio Editing for Podcasting, Interviews and Beyond

Audio Editing for Podcasting, Interviews and Beyond

The workshop will be delivered by Robert Humphries Massey.

Rob is an Audio Visual engineer at an FE college in Warwickshire, working full time on keeping seven college sites in working order and equipped for students working in games design, arts, horticulture, STEM and more. With a background as a 35mm cinema projectionist, and a keen interest in audio production, video and photography, Rob is looking to share his much asked about skills in audio editing to benefit your podcasting needs, and to get involved in audio visual projects and communities closer to his home in Birmingham.

In this class you will learn about:

  • Audio recording interviews and podcasts
  • Microphones – How to set them up and use them
  • Sound quality and optimal recording environment
  • How to edit ‘umms’ ‘ahhs’ and other interruptions in your audio
  • Audio editing software Audacity and Adobe Audition
  • MP3 & WAV files – optimal file types

Trade School Digbeth is run on a bartering system and no money is exchanged. Teachers hosting classes ask for small items (of low monetary value) and for this class Rob is asking for:

  • Career advice, coaching &/ contacts for an Audio Visual Engineer looking for work in Birmingham
  • Fabric, old postcards, arts materials
  • Lego



There is no charge to attend a class but please note, places on Trade School Digbeth classes are limited, so please only book if you are able to attend. If you book a place and then find yourself unable to attend, please do let us know or cancel your ticket as this will enable us to offer you place to someone else.


About Trade School

The Trade School network is a collective of self-organised barter-for-knowledge schools across the world. Trade School began in January 2009 as an experiment by a group of artists in New York City who wanted to celebrate local wisdom, mutual respect, and the social nature of exchange.

Trade School Digbeth is a local chapter of this initiative driven by the Impact Hub Birmingham community and friends. For more info and other upcoming Trade School classes, click here.
