Are you just starting out as a podcaster and don’t know how to edit your show?

Or are you a veteran podcaster and hate editing your own show?

Well, let me help you out! As a freelance audio engineer, I specialize in spoken word podcast editing!

Here’s a little background for the new comers of my website:

I have been podcast editing for the last 5 years. It all started when I first started podcasting back in 2012 with my first podcast Epic Questions (A Blizzard Entertainment Question and Answer Podcast). And then turned into my full time job.

I am currently creating two different weekly podcasts of my own where I create every aspect of the show from planning to publishing. But I will be honest with you, the Frozen Nerdz podcast (An All Blizzard Entertainment Podcast) doesn’t get much editing. It takes me 15 mins or less to slap the files together, and send them off to the webhost.

Over the years, I have edited and published over 300 podcast episodes of my own, and have edited over 500 episodes for clients from around the world.


Editing Services I Offer:

Basic Editing:

For basic editing, I will remove background noise, balance the volume between hosts and tracks, add provided intro/outros/stingers/commercials, remove gaps of dead air and I will provide the file back to you in a HQ MP3. (This is all I do for Frozen Nerdz).

Detailed Editing:

For detailed editing, I take it to the next level. I will listen to each host/track and remove filler words (ummms, ahhh, youknows, etc.), breaths, and remove insane background noise (like a gas generator). For detailed editing, it requires more time and attention so it does cost more.

You can find out more about that here.

Audio Restoration:

Not only am I an audio engineer, I am also an audio wizard. I have access to some of the top of the line audio restoration software on the market (iZotope RX 6 Advanced- Cost: $1,199 USD) This software and my keen ear makes it so I can take even the worst sounding audio, and turn it into something people can listen to. I can remove insane background noise, pops from the microphone, reverb, clicks, and more.

And you can find out more about that service here.


Why You Should Pick Me?

You may be asking yourself, why should I choose you to be my podcast editor? It’s very simple. I am dedicated to the craft, experienced and very good at what I do. But don’t take my word for it, check out my reviews on my Fiverr page here. 

On Fiverr, I am a level two seller, with over 200+ perfect 5 star reviews. And counting. If I don’t get the edit right for your the first time, I will work with you to make sure everything is prefect before going forward. As your editor, my goal is to make the audio of your podcast the best that it can be for your audience. Because what good is a podcast if the listeners can’t HEAR you and your message.


My Process for Every Podcast:

1.) Run the files through iZotope RX6 de-noise to remove basic background noise.
2.) Export file and open in Adobe Audition.
3.) Use a Dynamic processor to remove slight background noise.
4.) Either use a Speech Leveler or hard limiter (both different forms of compression).
5.) Edit for content (Based on type of editing being paid for).
6.) Slap on the intro/outro, and/or music.
7.) Export as a 256kpbs 44100Hz stereo mp3 (unless otherwise requested).


If you want to talk to me directly about podcast editing, or if you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to reach out with me on Twitter, Fiverr, or fill out this form below.

I also work with a lot of clients on UpWork. If you are looking to hire me on there, contact me below and I will provide the link.

Hello world!

I often get asked questions from people who are wanting to get into podcasting, or people wanting to get into doing voice over from home, on what type of equipment I use. It’s been a long journey, and over the years I have acquired expensive taste and a desire to have the best products to make my job easier. Below you will find a list of equipment I currently use, and equipment I used in the past when I first started out. (Some links may be affiliate links.)

My Current Equipment:

Previous Equipment:

My Thoughts:

You don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars on equipment, you can honestly record a podcast with some super basic equipment. But I will say this much, as a professional audio editor, those people using better equipment take require less editing time on the back end to make their podcast sound awesome. The whole point of a podcast is to be able to HEAR what the hosts/guests are talking about. If your audience isn’t able to hear you, then you may have to adjust the equipment or learn to master audio editing for yourself.

There are plenty of successful podcasts that are just using the Logitech ClearChat Comfort/USB Headset H390  to record their podcast. And honestly, its a super affordable method to do it. If you are able to eliminate a lot of your background noise while recording, your job gets that much easier.

Epic Tip: If you want to find out what your recording space sounds like, turn on your recorder and microphone and sit in complete silence without moving for 60 seconds. And then listen to the recorded file. This will give you an idea of the types of hums, hisses, electronic noises (PC’s are noisy), etc. This noise is called Room Tone. If you are having someone else edit your podcast (Like me ;)) if you record 10 seconds of room tone at the start of your podcast, editing just got that much easier. Because in the end, time is money.

If you are interested in my editing your podcast, check out my freelance service that starts out as low as $5 for 15 mins of audio!
