Curb Your Enthusiasm, Spontaneity Requires Editing


The world of television comedy was forever changed when “Curb Your Enthusiasm” debuted, bringing a level of improvisation to the medium that was daring and almost unheard of in a narrative series. In celebration of the series finale, the short video below delves into the unique production process that makes Curb similar to many podcasts.

Just as Curb’s brilliant editors craft narratives out of improvised content, podcast editors are tasked with molding conversations into engaging, concise pieces of audio. This process, which we at Sound That BRANDS call “audio sculpting,” involves discerning the essence of long, often spontaneous dialogues, and chipping away the extraneous to present listeners with a polished final product.

In a content-saturated market, I firmly believe that more podcasts need more editing.
