Thanks for this.
One thing I liked when I did Radio Edutalk was by doing the show live I felt no pressure to edit the archives, beyond a bit of levelling and trimming my technical problems at the start of a nicecast broadcast.
One of the values, to me, of listening to a podcast is the extra information, often emotional, that is carried by the voice. This research linked might support that premiss.
As podcasting gets a lot more professional, one of the downsides might be the loss of the unedited voice.

A few useful links for mixing audio and sending to Teams from a Mac.
This is not about the pros and cons of Teams. This is not about whether it is better than Slack, Zoom, Google Meet, Rocket.Chat or Jitsi. It is about a single feature that is so widely used in Zoom that I did not even think a serious competitor can lack the function – sharing your system audio with your colleagues and audience while presenting something on your screen.
The use case for that is pretty easily outlined: Prerecorded videos, reruns of an earlier session, or just some basic background music – all of that exceeds the basic capabilities of Microsoft Teams in its current iteration.
Loopback enables you to combine the audio from multiple sources, including microphones and applications, then provide that combined audio to voice chat applications to be heard by all participants.
You won’t use the Pass-Thru source which is included by default, so remove it by clicking to highlight it, then pressing the Delete button.
I wonder if removing Pass-Thru makes much difference.

When Nicecast went away I moved to Audio Hijack for the #ds106radio inspired Radio Edutalk.
It took a while to get my head round it but:

As far as I remember I took only the right channel to my headphones to avoid hearing myself.

Reminded me of Sound maps – UK Soundmap | British Library – Sounds where the sounds were crowd sourced. A lot of fun to join in with.

Beside other features, ospac includes a robust leveler, two solutions to avoid crosstalk and soft silence skipping.
Might be a replacement for The Levelator when 32 bit apps no longer work.
