If you care enough for your audience then you will make the extra time to clean the ugly first version, cut the fat, cover-up the goof-ups, amplify the moments of wow, clarify new words, concepts or name drops, align the overall narration so it’s worth listening, sharing and relistening.
An easier way to feel the pinch of the rough edges is to magnify it’s seemingly small impact by the size of your audience.
If the ah’s, um’s and long pauses suck up 2 minutes of your episode with an audience of 10,000. Then it’s a collective drain of 2-weeks worth of time, energy and attention! Nevermind the distraction and irritation it causes to your listeners.
Refine until it’s your best work. It will never be perfect. Yet, it can still be your best work.
Go and make some Galata.
