This portion of my podcast is around the first 5.5 minutes.

For the things that I like, there are really only two aspects I can think of. First, I feel confident so far about the length. This is exactly half of my transcript so far, so I think the podcast will end right around 11 minutes. I was worried that I had overestimated how long each portion would take, so I’m happy it seems to be lining up well. Second, I like how my sources are proving very useful. I wasn’t sure if it would all fit together, but I think the organization and use of video clips/music/etc. is working so far.

For questions/concerns, I have many more. My primary concern (not so much a question) is that I want to redo my narration. It sounds awkward to me, so I would like to try again. I also feel like it is not as clear as it could be, which I’m not sure whether that’s a problem with my recording or my editing. Second, some of my transitions between clips are pretty rough, especially when I fade out the music at times. How do I fix that? This connects to my next question, which is whether I should have background music throughout all the narration. Would that make it feel more cohesive and less choppy?
