I use Premiere mostly to extract clips from long podcasts/interviews and sometimes to assemble various clips together with some transition between each.

Which alternative to PP can I use that accomplishes this while being a lot more simple and intuitive in terms of UX?

I recommend OpenShot.

  • The UX is mature but not too complex
  • Extracting parts of audio/videos appears an easy task
  • Available for Linux, Windows and even MacOS
  • It's easy to split videos into smaller parts: enter image description here You can keep both sides on slicing or only one.
  • Thanks, you sure it allows to do what I need to do? I saw nothing about clips on their YT channel.

  • I've added a fourth bullet point. If I understand you correctly, it's really important for you to split the clips. I find it quite easy to trim videos that I have imported to my project. Maybe you should try it out to be sure that it suits you.
