Supporting The Democratisation of Podcasting

Easy way to remove your ums and erms

Jim! This one’s for you.

We all do it. We can talk all day to friends, colleagues and family without uttering a singled ‘um’ or ‘erm’. But sit in front of a microphone to record a podcast and they pour out between every sentence.

So how do professional broadcasters and newsreaders speak without making these unwanted noises? Practice, practice, practice – a heavy dollop of self discipline.

Sure, we can edit our podcasts to remove these noises; but it can get boring after a while and it is time consuming – so far as I know – there is not an app for that (yet).

The best way to solve this is to train yourself not to make those noises at all.
