Podcast Editing and Consulting Services
If you need help launching your own podcast, you've come to the right place! I've been podcasting since 2005, when I launched my first show in my childhood bedroom. Since then, I've launched numerous shows of my own, and have helped dozens of others record, edit, and monetize their podcasts.
Podcasts have seen a boom in recent years for several reasons.
- You can listen to them anywhere
- They can be free of corporate overlords who control the message and give you dumb rules
- Podcasts can be loose, fun, and personal
- People can spread their passions to a wide audience in an easy, addicting, high-tech way
If you don't have any experience with starting or recording podcasts, launching a show can be a daunting task. I specialize in every part of podcasting, and I can edit your podcast for you.
Why should you hire me for editing and consulting? I've been podcasting every week since 2005. With the help of my partners, I plan, host, edit, monetize, and publish two podcasts: MuggleCast and #Millennial. I am the lead host of these shows. Collectively they reach 70,000 listeners weekly and generate six-figure annual revenue.
Over the past few years I've developed a unique digital podcasting studio that allows me to record and live stream my podcasts while taking phone calls, playing music and sound effects, and interacting with listeners. All I need is a computer, an internet connection, and my beloved microphone. I've got every area of podcasting covered and can set you up with the same.

Recurring Podcast Editing Services
If you're looking for an on-going podcasting partner, I can handle the editing and release of your podcast. And for working with me on a recurring basis, I will also offer you on-going consulting for no extra charge.
Each week I will take care of the following tasks for your podcast:
- Clean and level the audio files so they sound as great as possible. This includes removing background noise and unwanted mouth noises.
- Mix together multiple audio files.
- Remove mistakes, restarts, awkward gaps in dialogue, and other things you don't want in your podcast.
- Add music at the beginning and end of your show.
- Write a paragraph of enticing shownotes.
- Release your podcast across the many podcast apps, like Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Overcast, PocketCast, etc.
- Be on standby should you ever have any questions about podcasting.
- Make suggestions for how to promote and monetize your podcast.
Episodes can be turned around in as little as 24-48 hours, but will depend on factors including length of the episodes and when you send me the audio files.
My rates vary depending on the amount of assistance I'm providing, and the frequency of which I'm editing (i.e. weekly editing versus monthly):
Package 1: All-inclusive editing and release - $150/episode, for a weekly podcast not exceeding an hour in length. Includes all tasks described above. This package is a one-stop shop. At this tier, I will cover the most important tasks in running a weekly podcast.
Package 2: Editing only - $50 per hour of time spent editing. I typically estimate that an episode will take me 2.5x the length of the recording to an edit. So for example, if an episode recording is 30 minutes long, it will take me 1.25 hours to edit. This includes cleaning the audio files and balancing the audio for a great listening experience.
Package 3: Podcast consulting - If you don't need me to edit but you need help planning, launching, want to be taught how to edit, or have any other questions, my rate is $150/hour.

“Any Andrew Sims podcast is my standard for a quality podcast. The sound quality is always the best and it's expertly edited!” - Rachael, Ithica NY
“I'm here for the quality of the content, and I stick around because of the quality of the production.” - Kayla S., Little Rock AR
“I have listened to shows that Andrew has produced for a decade now and they are always high quality. Besides the content, that is the main reason why I keep listening. He has a passion for great sound and clean editing. Every episode is consistent with the next and you always know you will have a pleasant listening experience.” - Patrick F., Elkhorn WI
“The level of production is unparalleled, and Andrew takes great care in ensuring the listeners have a high quality listen experience. “ - Vicki S., Toronto
“Millennial is definitely one of the more consistent in sound podcasts that I listen to - especially knowing that you’re not all in a studio together.” - Jessica W, Anchorage AK
“The quality of Millennial is as good as any non-corporate produced show I listen to (such as a show hosted by NPR or the New York Times). It's always very crisp and clear and very rarely are there audio issues.,” Angel B, Seattle
“I listen to a lot of other podcasts, and if I can say one thing for certain, the sound quality of the shows produced by this team has ruined me for some of those other shows. I sometimes have to skip entire episodes of other podcasts or even unsubscribe entirely because the sound quality and editing is simply not up to par with #Millennial. Come for the amazing content, stay for the incredible audio.” - Kelsey P, San Ramon CA
