3 Clips: How Binge Mode Creates Wildly Enjoyable Episodes without NPR-Style Edits

Binge Mode from The Ringer has exploded into popularity thanks to their original blend of entertaining and insightful analysis of popular fiction like Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, and Star Wars. But Binge Mode, despite it’s irresistible audio, doesn’t do all the crazy post-production editing usually associated with the phrase “production value.” Instead, they do something else — something we can all do, regardless of our budget — in order to produce an unbelievable podcast.
