I had a lot of resistance to listen to this episode. But did and I am pleasantly surprised! Andrew's new app sounds very interesting and I will try this week.

Got a lot out of this - both the questions and the answers. Thank you! Just wondering if the audio payer can be adjusted so that it jumps in smaller increments. Often I just want to jump back 10 seconds and then have to sit there for 30 to hear something again. Once off it's ok, but when you're doing it dozens of times it starts to really waste a lot of time!

I kinda want to start a podcast just so I can play with Descript. It looks that fun.
