I use Ardour for it and when I was doing it for the first time, I
discovered the difference between "Slide edit" and "Splice edit". For
cleaning up interviews you generally want "Splice edit" mode, which
will move regions after the cut automatically to fit with the regions
before that. (Audacity doesn't know any other mode.)

If you don't want to do cuts, Ardour's level curves etc. are a big
help as well. Which to choose of course depends on the material.
