Make Serious Money Editing Podcasts

Finding your 1st paying client is hard.
Getting your 2nd client is a little easier.
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?
Does family time get put aside? Does your 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.

…but editing it 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.

“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 ondemand 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.”

Jon Gay


“I just finished the Podcast Editor Business Model course in the Podcast Editor Academy! It was sooo good! Now I have a few things to think about and implement. It’s a great course & I’m so happy to be a member of the Podcast Editor’s Academy, it really is proving to be a great resource. Thank you!”

Skills-based learning in one place

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.

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 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

Chief Editor Officer

Hi, I’m Steve. I’ve been editing podcasts since 2010, and professionally for my peers since January 2016.

I LOVE editing podcasts, love helping others make better podcasts, and run the world’s largest and most diverse community of podcast editors: The Podcast Editors Club.

Between running the Club, Conference, Academy, and editing over 100 podcast episodes every month for my clients, you could say I have some experience with editing podcasts and how to actually run a small business.

Now, with the Podcast Editor Academy, you get to learn from me and other professionals in the podcast industry!

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

He founded Podcast Atlanta in 2016 which has become the world’s fastest-growing local podcast group boasting nearly 1400 members. He’s a local leader and nationally recognized expert on the subject of Podcasting having hosted or spoke at over 50 events across the U.S. and organized the first Podcast Editors Conference in Orlando on March 6th, 2020 (yelp.. one week before that thing).

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

“Steve shares 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.”

“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.

“I used to travel a lot for work, living out of hotel rooms and eating in strange places.

One of the greatest benefits of becoming a Podcast Editor has been working at home…and on my own schedule!

My wife and I are much happier now than we’ve ever been. We are able to live off my income and take trips when we want to – not when the boss says it’s okay or there’s a holiday.

I never thought editing podcasts could actually be a career. But here we are!”
