Good audio production starts with a good recording, so I put this little cheat sheet together to help you out!

Level I: Getting Started

I also like to call this Pre-Production. Together, we’ll go from ideation to you being ready to record and upload your first episode. Here’s what we’ll do:

Purpose and Goals

Before we start anything, it’s important we answer the two most important questions. Purpose and Goals. These will guide us going forward in all of our future decisions.

  • Establish The Purpose of Your Show
    • What will your listeners get from it?
      • Knowledge, Inspiration, a Laugh, etc.
  • Establish The Goals of Your Show
    • What do you hope to get out of it? 
      • New Clients, Reach, Influence, etc. 

Brainstorming

Let’s get creative. I think it’s important to know all your options beyond the basic Interview Style format. There are many other options and we should explore the various ways to present your material to best deliver your Purpose and meet your Goals.

  • Deciding on the overall path of your show
  • Serial vs. Episodic
  • Seasons vs. Continuous
  • Interview vs. Scripted
  • Structure
  • Theme(s)

Setting Up

After we take all these steps, you’ll be ready to record your first episode. You’ll know where to upload your audio files, and where to send people to listen to them.

  • Show Name and Cover Design
  • Hosting Service
  • Getting on Listening Platforms (Apple, Google Podcasts, Spotify, iHeart Radio, etc.)
  • Writing Episode Description
  • Choosing Episode Categories
  • FREE Recording Tips & Best Practices

Level II: Production

Imagine you’ve recorded your podcast. Woo! But, how do you make the audio sound professional? How do you insert your show’s intro, mix in music and sound effects if applicable? What about putting ads in? I can help put all these elements together for you. Send me the audio, and out the other end is your professionally produced podcast to be uploaded. Here’s what I’ll do. Also, some examples of my work.

Editing

This is especially important and needed for scripted podcasts, but still crucial for the unscripted ones. Editing starts with a good recording. So, get my recording best practices worksheet for FREE. Here’s what else I’ll do:

  • Remove & Reduce Noise
  • Adding Pauses, Inserting Ad Breaks, etc.
  • Removing Bad Takes
  • Removing Breaths When Possible

Mixing & Mastering

Have you ever listened to an interview and one speaker is very LOUD and another very soft? It’s frustrated toggling the volume up and down. Or they have background music that’s too loud and distracting. That’s just a few of the things I’ll take care of for you.

  • Adding and Blending Music, Effects, Transitions, etc.
  • Adjusting and Balancing Audio Levels
  • Mixing for Stereo (Panning)
  • Compression & EQ

Uploading

I will upload your audio directly into the Hosting sight so it gets distributed everywhere. Now all you need to do is promote it!

  • Mp3 & Mp4 Files
  • ID3 Tagging (the data of your file)
  • Upload to Hosting Site and Listening Platforms

Starting @ $240 per episode*

*Pricing is dependent on time. Longer episodes will cost more due to the additional time for editing and mixing. Also, scripted episodes require more time than unscripted. Reach out below and we can figure out all the details together.

Here’s What Editing and Mixing Looks Like When I’m Done : )

Some Examples

For the best representation of my work, listen to the latest episode of More Than A Story. Here are some clips from that to point out specific things:

Intro to The Show

My intro comes after the first scene of the story to get people hooked first. Key things I like to point out about the script I wrote for it: I explain the show within a sentence or two, then there’s a statement to provide a reason to stay until the very end, and finally a little about myself and my mission. I also wrote the music.

A Fun Speech

This shows some music I’m proud to have written, my ability to perform my scripts, and to make a really cool moment that feels exciting and intense. There’s a rising build-up throughout this episode’s story that leads to the main character re-accepting his role as, “The Teacher.” This is that moment : )

Back and Forth Convo

This is from my scripted episodes of two characters talking to each other (Note: the wind in the background, is an audio effect and is supposed to be there). If you have headphones or stereo speakers, you’ll notice that each voice has a place in your head. Some more in the left ear, and some more in the right ear. If this were an interview podcast, we can do something similar to help the listener follow who’s speaking when there are many voices.
