In the world of podcasting, Tom Kelly's journey is a testament to the power of perseverance and passion.

Little did he know, his path would take him to an unexpected encounter that would change everything. Tom's story is about his determination and hard work. He began by listening to podcasts in a wood shop and later worked on installing solar panels for Tesla. Eventually, he started his own editing business.

  • What kept Tom going when it was tough
  • One thing that could really help YOU land clients (and a free resource we have for you if you want it...)
  • How Tom's priorities have shifted in recent years

I realized I wanted to get into [podcasting], and it wasn't even podcast production at the time. I wanted to run a network. That was my first interest in podcasting. - Tom Kelly

Master the podcast editing journey

Tom's experiences in the podcast editing business offer valuable lessons for those aiming to carve their own path in this field. Thes include things like persistence, learning from failures, and gaining practical experience with different types of audio recordings are integral to mastering the craft.

Jesse McCune is Creating a Supportive Community for Aspiring Podcast Editors

In a world where Jesse McCune's career in facility maintenance seemed light years away from his true passion, an unexpected twist brought him closer than ever to his dream. Little did he know that a conversation with his wife would ignite a fire within him, leading him down a path he never anticipated.

With a burning desire to combine his audio expertise with a viable business opportunity, Jesse embarked on a journey that would reveal the untapped potential of the podcasting world. But as he delved deeper, he uncovered a gap in resources that left him craving more. Little did he know, this was just the beginning of a remarkable adventure filled with self-discovery and triumph.

Listen to Discover

  • Strategies to overcome the challenges of meeting client expectations and learn how to effectively communicate your editing process.
  • The importance of clear and open communication in podcast editing for stronger client relationships and better outcomes.
  • One key thing that we bring to the table as podcast editors that AI can't replicate.

Learning how to listen to people, to truly understand their nuances and capture their voices, is key in podcast editing. Our brains are powerful at picking up subtle details, so it's important to pay attention to those small breaths and pauses that make a dialogue authentic. - Jesse McCune

The episode underscores the critical significance of effective communication while dealing with clients. Jesse's experiences with his clients demonstrate the need for transparent, open discussions, especially when it comes to explaining technicalities like audio quality. This could help mitigate issues arising from unrealistic expectations and solidify a healthy editor-client relationship.

About Jesse McCune

Jesse McCune is a podcast editor with a passion for music production and audio engineering. Jesse developed an interest in audio and taught himself music production and audio engineering. This (with some prompting from his wife) led him to discover podcast editing.

Jesse created Tansy Aster Academy because he couldn't find enough helpful resources for podcast editors. The Academy is a community where editors can get guidance and support from each other.

Through Tansy Aster Academy, Jesse's team offers an interactive learning experience for editors looking to level up their skills in podcast production as well as business.
