From Paula Pant: "I wanted to launch a podcast, but I had zero experience with that medium, and I felt overwhelmed by the enormity of the task ahead. I was aware that I didn’t know what I didn’t know, and rather than attempting to do everything myself, I decided it would be a far better use of my time and energy to bring in an expert.
I had zero reservations about bringing in an editor. I want to build a team of people who — ideally — are more skilled and experienced than I am, because that’s how to build a fantastic show.
Steve is the glue that holds this podcast together. The difference between the raw footage vs. the final product is as stark as the difference between Hannah Montana vs. Miley Cyrus today. So I guess you could say that Steve is the Miley Cyrus of podcasting. :-)
Steve handles everything “behind-the-scenes” — editing, management and production — so I can focus on my role as an interviewer and on-air presenter. As a result, my podcast is constantly improving, because I have both the time and mental bandwidth to focus on my role as the host. I don’t have to juggle a million little tasks; Steve takes care of everything, and he does it with the utmost timeliness and professionalism.
I recommend Steve to any podcaster — regardless of whether you’re starting a new show or maintaining/growing an existing show."
