My guest this week is Sidney Evans Jr. Sidney is a podcast editor and producer from Durham, NC (recently moved to Atlanta), who found his first client after joining a podcast editor's group on Facebook. He joined me for a discussion about getting started with podcast editing and production, the challenges of working in this new industry, what clients really value and pay for, and more.
- How do you find your first clients?
- Do you need a website and/or tutorials to attract clients?
- What are people hiring podcast editors looking for?
- Should we be making tutorials and content to attract clients?
- Should you invest time in trying to convince people to start podcasts?
- Should you only work with shows that are aligned with your goals and values?
- How much should you charge for your services?
- Sidney on Twitter

- Open Convo Podcast

P.S. California friends: I'll be attending Dribbble's Hangtime conference in LA on Tuesday, December 4th (2018). Tickets are still available, but if you can't make the conference, you should still attend the after-party (Simplecast is sponsoring and it's gonna be cool). Come hang with some amazing designers and podcasters and make some new friends! Visit https://dribbble.com/hangtimes/2018-la to learn more.
