This week, we’re critiquing work from the challenge from the Episode 8: Your Baby’s Ugly.
Dan Waldschmidt and Matthew Williamson just produced the pilot episode of a podcast called “Ordinary Heroes,” but they know they need a new point of view on it — time for an edit! Dan and Matthew bravely volunteered to go through an edit on the air with Ben, Matt, and me. We dig into who should narrate the story and how, the role of music in the show, whether we should explicitly lay out the message of the show, and more.
Listen to the show:

Get an edit. This is different from the challenge for episode 7, where I suggested that you do a focus session, which is editorial collaboration that happens during the conceptual or writing phase of a project.
An edit is a critique, and it happens on an at-least-semi-complete draft of a piece.
Our final episode of Season 1, Episode 9: Work It, We get into how creative people make it work, money, family, everything.
