HELPING PEOPLE TURN THEIR PASSION FOR PODCAST EDITING INTO A CAREER

Get paid to provide your skilled services to a growing industry

Make Serious Money Editing Podcasts

Finding your 1st paying client is hard.
Getting your 2nd client is a little easier.
…but you end up spending a lot of time editing as a side-hustle.
Editing can provide extra income if you have the time to spare – and it’s a good use of your talents.
But what happens when you try to add a 3rd client to your roster?
Does family time get put aside?
Does the day-job suffer?
When did your fun hobby turn into just another part-time job???

Let’s turn that around

Anybody can edit a podcast.
Editing WELL takes practice and skill.
Editing EFFICIENTLY takes knowledge and tools.
Scaling it to big enough to be a SIGNIFICANT INCOME takes processes, systems, and wisdom.

We have some good news for you!

THE PODCAST EDITOR ACADEMY

The place where you belong includes a community with knowledge and support for Podcast Editors who take their service offerings seriously.

Skills-based learning in one place

Where do you get your training to be a podcast editor? YouTube videos?

Many of those are old or not relevant to the way you edit.

Where do you get your questions answered?

Most Facebook groups and Reddit forums are filled with podcasters.

You might be a podcaster yourself, but that’s not the hat you’re wearing when you start asking about compression & LUFS.

The Podcast Editor Academy is the one place where you can get help, learn from other editors, and draw upon the business experience from those who are already successful.


We are the hub for everything a growing Podcast Editor will need to get started, keep going, and continue succeeding to greater heights.

Steve Stewart, Co-founder

I started editing for one of my peers in January 2016. By mid-2016 I turned podcast editing into a new career.

A year later, I launched the Podcast Editors Club on Facebook, which has grown to over 7,000 members.

I didn’t get here alone. Mark Deal helped me run the very first conference for podcast editors, the Podcast Editors Conference in Orlando and many other virtual summits and live streams since then.

Between the Podcast Editors Club, Conference, Academy, and editing over 100 episodes every month for my clients, you could say I know a little about podcast editing and how to actually run a small business just like yours.

That being said, I still get help and training from my peers to continuously improve.

Now, with the Podcast Editor Academy, you get to learn from the same inner circle of professionals the rest of us rely on!

Mark Deal, co-founder Podcast Editor Academy

Mark Deal, Co-founder

A reformed engineer, graduate level data scientist, and former corporate global marketing leader – that has evolved into a conversational architect.

I founded Podcast Atlanta in 2016 which has become the world’s fastest-growing local podcast group boasting nearly 1300 members. I’m a local leader and nationally recognized expert on the subject of Podcasting having hosted or spoke at nearly 50 events across the U.S. and organizing the Podcast Editors Conference in Orlando for March 2020.

My personal podcasting journey starts back in 2013 and now see myself as a ‘Podcast Director’ while working with hosts, co-hosts, and guests for multi-national law firms as well as companies headquartered in Atlanta.

I also show people how to take their podcast guest appearances from boring to soaring with measurable impact through Podcast Guest Academy.

Together, we run the Podcast Editor Academy

“The academy is one of my best resources as a podcast editor & engineer. I use it as a tool for something I want to learn or need to brush up on.

“Steve posts new editing jobs when they come in. I expressed my interest with a quick email and a few days later – I got the gig!

The work I did from that gig alone was more than the yearly membership for the Academy. Much more!
 
There are so many opportunities for professional development, networking and business tips in the Podcast Editor Academy – I highly recommend joining.”

“While I’m very comfortable with my editing abilities, I was looking for some additional points to grow the business properly (i.e. workflow, add other team members, etc.).

The Podcast Editors Academy has allowed me to connect with fellow editors, join a mastermind, and gain additional insight to growing my team and business.”

Your membership in the Podcast Editor Academy gives you:

  • Monthly Office Hours calls
  • Access to more than 60 hours of educational videos
  • Scripts and sales templates to land potential clients

“I’ve been a member of the Podcast Editor Club on Facebook for a few years now, and I’ve gotten a wealth of information out of it. 

It was a no-brainer to join the Podcast Editors Academy when they launched. 

So far, the most valuable aspect has been the on-demand tutorials.  As a solopreneur, I often can’t watch these events in real-time – but I’ve been able to go through the archive of presentations to greatly expand my knowledge of the craft. 

The Academy has been a great, great resource.”
