If you’re anything like me, you love good audio. You’re continually increasing your knowledge base, honing your production techniques, researching gear, and generally striving to produce the best product you can.

Maybe you’re coming from a music production background, live sound, broadcast, sound for picture, or whatever it may be.

Now you’re thinking about podcasting. And really, why wouldn’t you be? Podcasts are one of the fastest-growing media platforms on the planet right now. Independent and democratized from their beginning, podcasts are being produced by everyone from enthusiastic fans, neophytes sharing their journeys, businesses, industry professionals, you name it.

Perhaps you already listen to podcasts, but have you thought about working on them?

Let me tell you: you should think about working on them. Why?

You already have the skillset - From an audio engineering standpoint, there is next to zero industry-specific knowledge when it comes to podcasts. There are certainly ways to get better and faster, but this will come with practice once you get started.

You may already have what you need - No need for studio space, tuned acoustical treatment, and racks of outboard gear. A modest laptop, decent speakers or headphones, and any DAW are all you need to get started.

It’s a great side hustle - No need to quit your current gig. You can always start with a single show and build up from there as your schedule allows.

Freedom - Yes, podcasts have deadlines. But you can choose if you want to work mornings or evenings. Work from home or the coffee shop. Even travel the world and edit anywhere from hotel rooms to the beach. As long as you have internet, the choice is yours.


There's an underlying assumption through this book, and that assumption is that you already have some audio skills that you're bringing to the table. Depending on your previous work, you may or may not have the required freelancing skills you're going to need. If not, it’s time to step up! You may have the skills deliver the sweetest, smoothest sounding episodes ever. Still, if you are constantly butting heads with your clients over any number of fundamental issues, you're not going to be able to stay gainfully employed.

While the general topic of freelancing is truly massive, I want to hit on a few tactical points you can implement quickly that should serve you well as an editor.

1. Establish ONE way to communicate with your clients.

In life and podcasting, communication is vital. Nowadays, we have more and more ways to communicate and share than ever, which can be a good thing and a bad thing. Communication becomes more and more relevant as you increase the number of clients you have. Let’s take a look at how things can spiral out of control.

Client #1 comes on board. They use email and upload their files to Google Drive. Great! No problem as you already have a Google account and an email for your new business set up.

Client #2 comes on board, but they like to use Dropbox. Um, OK, I don't have an account, but I'll get one set up and
