Podcasters and industry insiders know the amount of time and energy spent in editing their content, which in many cases actually takes longer than it takes to record the content. The Wave recognizes this and has launched a podcast editing service specifically for women, so that they can spend more time doing what they love…creating content.
Los Angeles, CA – May 18, 2021, The Wave has made national headlines this week as they announce the launch of SWELL Podcasting, a unique & groundbreaking podcast editing service exclusively for women, founded and run by women. SWELL pairs female audio engineers with female podcasters so they can grow their shows by outsourcing the tedious tasks that prevent many podcast hosts from building their audience. In the past, editing services like this could become quite costly, however, with SWELL’s revolutionary business model, editing packages can be purchased for as little as $99.
The Wave was founded in 2019 by Lauren Popish, with the goal of helping women share their stories through podcasting. The Wave offers free educational resources including over 100 blog posts, YouTube videos, and a weekly newsletter that has amassed a cult following. These invaluable resources help guide women through the industry of podcasting, which until now, was dominated by men. She launched the first women-only podcast recording studio in Los Angeles in February 2020. The Wave is currently documenting the process of starting a podcast from scratch in their weekly YouTube series, Making the Pod. The resulting new podcast, Podcast Like a Girl, will be released in May 2021 and showcase women in podcasting.
SWELL Podcast editing service was founded in 2021 by The Wave, with two goals in mind: to provide a podcast editing service for women by women, and to contribute to the jobs sector by increasing the supply & demand for female audio engineers while providing them with not just a living wage, but a thriving wage. Outsourcing the editing aspect of podcasting makes total sense, as it frees up more time for the podcaster to promote and market the podcast to their intended audience. Audio editing can be quite time-consuming and can eat up precious time that can be better spent by attending to other very important tasks that will increase viewership, which ultimately increases profits.
During a recent interview, the company spokesperson for SWELL was quoted as saying, “When we learned that only 5% of all individuals working in audio are women, we knew we needed to challenge the existing production standards and encourage more diversity in the audio industry. That is why we created a podcast editing service for women where female podcasters could have confidence their voices are being edited only by other women. As a result, we are also creating job demand that will hopefully increase the number of women who want to become trained and work in audio production.”
The Wave now serves more women than ever by providing online educational resources, podcast editing services, and digital community. The Wave launched SWELL, a podcast editing services for women by women, in the spring of 2021.
Ylani Sacedo of Ylani Talks podcast, a recent client of SWELL was quoted as saying, “The whole experience was genuinely a great one. Communication with the editor was smooth, and the turnaround of files and edits were faster than expected. I really loved that.”
