Do you #podcast? If so, please compress your audio. That means you're reducing the difference in volume of your peaks and valleys in your waveform. You can do that by applying a "Hard Limiter" to the track. 1/
It raises valleys and the overall volume of your track while preventing your audio from clipping.
Appropriate settings for a hard limiter in #podcast world are:
Hard limit -6dB
Add "gain" by +6 until the average volume of your track is at -12dB
2/
You can repeat applying these Hard Limiter settings until your vocal audio averages from -16dB to -12dB. When there's something loud like laughing, it should peak at -6dB.
A properly compressed track means your audience gets a nice even #podcast.
3/
You'll want to remove noise before you apply your hard limiter. If you are recording in a loud environment and have lots of background noise, you don't want to apply too much gain because it will make your background noise louder without making your voices louder.
