The Problem:

Learning To Edit Podcasts Shouldn't Be This Tough

It's easy enough to learn the basics of podcast editing, but where do you go to take that next step?

Symptom 1

You feel lost.

You are responsible for the audio quality of the episodes you work on, whether it's your show or a client's. You hear other shows and wonder how you can make yours sound as good. Countless hours have been spent in the Google and YouTube rabbit holes looking for answers but you emerge more confused than before. How do you know if the advice is good or bad?

Symptom 2

Your episodes aren't improving.

The struggles continue and it's difficult to find ways to improve the audio quality. RX is intimidating. EQ is a mystery. And you still don't quite understand what compression does or why it's important.

Symptom 3

You can't find the right resources.

No matter where you look, you never quite find what you're searching for -- the questions remain. The resources for podcast editing are focused on specific topics or tasks, but there's nothing that put's it all together for you.

Symptom 4

You don't have confidence in your skills.

After everything you've learned, you still lack confidence in your abilities. The lack of understanding EQ and compression are holding you back. The recordings you work on have noise, reverb, and other sounds you don't know how to fix. You just want to become a better editor and it shouldn't be this tough to learn.

I've been where you are.

As a self-taught audio engineer, I know how challenging it can be to learn from a mixture of books, YouTube videos and internet searches. Trying to figure out how I can work more efficiently so I'm not spending so much time editing each episode. Every speed bump that's slowed you, every roadblock you've hit, I've been there. I've taken courses, read books and watched tutorials. Throughout all of these challenges, I've learned a lot and I want to teach it to you.

Become The Editor You Want To Be

Going from where you are now to where you want to be is as simple as developing your editing chops, learning how to use a few tools and building repeatable processes that will save you time.


Clean Up Audio With Izotope RX

How well you prep your audio can make or break a podcast. Clean audio is easier to listen to and helps you sound more credible. It's part of your sonic brand. Don't cheapen your reputation by skipping this part. Your audience wants to hear clear, easy to understand dialog. They don't want to hear noisy, reverb drenched conversations listening to your guest's dry mouth. Your listeners will thank you.

Deliver A Consistent Listening Experience

A well mixed episode will eliminate the volume fluctuations that are normal when people speak. When you learn how to use compression and eq you will quickly produce episodes that are consistent from one episode to the next.


Demystify Mastering

Lufs, loudness meters, true peaks, and limiters. The mastering process is one that trips up a lot of podcasters. You are not alone in the struggle, but it doesn't need to be as overwhelming as it seems. When you have a good mix, hitting your target loudness is simple.

Social Proof

Jesse’s course on audio repair explains every aspect in detail with examples to listen to which helps narrow down what area to hone in on. Jesse was also super helpful when I couldn’t work out how to repair some bad audio and actually took the time to record a short video to explain what steps to take, I would totally recommend this course if you want to take that next step in improving your skills and providing your clients with a higher level end product. It was super helpful and just what I had been looking for.

Podcast Manager, LJS Creative Services
I developed a system over nearly seven years of podcasting…but I wasn’t satisfied. Jesse analyzed my flow and sound quality and then provided a different approach. I incorporated Jesse’s approach to my podcast and the results are:
1. I regained time by editing more efficiently
2. My sound improved,
3. I have a better understanding of post production work.

Scott Davidson

Host, Living Adaptive & This Is A True Story
As someone who is new to audio/podcasting, it's important that I learn the basics and fundamentals of how audio works, and having, not only an expert, but someone who can teach well, is key to a successful lesson, and Jesse checks both those boxes, I highly recommend!"

Doug Parsons
