    How Podcast Editors Can Create More Diversity and Inclusion

    How Podcast Editors Can Create More Diversity and Inclusion

    If you’re struggling to respond to or understand the Black Lives Matter movement personally and professionally, you aren’t alone. There’s a fine line between authentic allyship and service and skeevy marketing strategies. Yet, research shows that diversity and inclusion positively benefits bottom lines. 


    The millennial and Gen Z generations are the most diverse in history: only 56% of the 87 million millennials in the country are white, as compared to 72% of the 76 million members of the baby boomer generation. ( (https://money.cnn.com/interactive/economy/diversity-millennials-boomers/) )


    What is diversity in simple words?


    It means understanding that each individual is unique, and recognizing our individual differences. These can be along the dimensions of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs, or other ideologies. -- via (https://www.qcc.cuny.edu/diversity/definition.html)


    Highlights How diversity benefits our business


    Your bubble probably insulates you from seeing black podcasters and creators


    Start with your WHY 


    The case for mentorship 


    Tips for cold emails to non-white podcasters 


    Why people of color are cautious about asks


    It boils down to developing relationships authentically 


    Be open to being called out and then do better


    Taking a hard look at diversity in your business, podcast, and marketing efforts


    Helping your clients tackle diversity and inclusion


    Stock images are NOT very diverse


    The importance of making sure everyone benefits from your inclusion and diversity efforts


     BONUS: Reparations isn’t necessarily about money...


    Who is Nikita?Nikita Burks-Hale is the CEO and Head Creative of JourneyGurl Magic Productions, which is a podcast production company that supports and empowers Womxn of Color as they bring their unique voices to the masses through podcasting. Nikita is also the host of 2 podcasts, The JourneyGurl Magic Podcast and The Podcaster’s Journey (launch Aug 2020). 


    What You can do now: Best Practices for Diversifying Your Podcast, Your Ask, And Your Life (https://journeygurlmagicproductions.lpages.co/passthemic/)


    Follow black creator hashtags (and other non-white hashtags). Start with tags like #blackpodcasts and #blackpodcasters 


    Engage with some podcasters regularly to expand your ‘bubble.’


    Listen to podcasts from black creators (see links for some suggestions).


    Open a dialogue with your clients about the importance and opportunity of diversity.


    Be a mentor to a podcast editor of color.


    Don’t give up. This is an every day, forever habit to develop.

    Digital Hoarders and Pedagogy-- Podcast Editing Business Edition

    When does your editing business invest in new equipment? Is it when productivity lags? Or is it merely a matter of budget? How do you know when it’s REALLY time to replace equipment? And then what determines how much you spend? We help Bryan decide whether to purchase a new Mac computer or stick with his old one. Plus, file storage, video editing, and impostor syndrome!


    We support (https://wocpodcasters.co/podcasters-for-justice-campaign/) ... and where to donate & what to do:


    (https://www.gofundme.com/f/georgefloyd)


    (https://minnesotafreedomfund.org/)


    (https://www.blackvisionsmn.org/)


    (https://www.joincampaignzero.org/)


    (https://www.blacklivesmatter.com/)


    Text “Floyd” to 55156 to sign a petition to demand justice for George Floyd.


    Sign-up at (https://colorofchange.org/) to be notified of more opportunities to take action


    Questions to ask before you buy that thing…  


    Is this an emotional desire or practical need?


    How long will your investment to last?


    Is your need for the gear long or short term?


    Is there a work-around?


    When you spend more time crashing and rebooting than editing, it’s time to get a new computer. 


    Also covered...


    We get into file storage because you can never back up enough. 


    Bryan is NOT a PC guy. 


    What video software is the easiest? 


    Daniel discusses his recent experience with Impostor Syndrome… notice how we approach it through awareness and practical experience. 


    We share the value of accountability and you’ll probably learn a new word. 


    Getting inspiration from others who are doing similar things as you isn’t really stealing… or is it? 


    Should Jennifer do a course? (yes, I think she should)


    Jennifer, a skeptic, gives a review of Descript 


    Descript Tip: Use Ctrl/Cmd + F to find a word or phrase to delete en masse

    Podcast Editors: Getting Beyond the Edit to Help Podcasters Get What They Want

    Podcast Editors: Getting Beyond the Edit to Help Podcasters Get What They Want

    Podcast editing is a growing industry that still has opportunities for a lot of people. But the question still remains: "How can I differentiate myself as an editor and be irreplaceable for my clients?"


    Dava Visaya from PodcastEngineers.com (https://podcastengineers.com/) joined us to talk about that question.


    Dave is a podcast editor from the Philippines who has an interesting career trajectory. He owns a small podcast production agency with all in-house producers and editors (at least in-house when they're not under COVID-19 restrictions). 


    He had the goal of building a large agency with a deep portfolio of clients but has recently decided to shift his business.


    Listen to discover:


    How many times the cats joined us :)


    How Dave didn't think of himself as a professional early on, even though he was working on a very popular show


    Challenges and strategies for pricing services, especially when working with international clients


    What often stops editors from hiring people to help them


    What you need to have in place before you start hiring


    The benefits of having your team in-house, operating on a single platform and suite of software and plugins


    Ideas for how you can differentiate yourself from your competitors to the point that you might be the only option your clients ever consider


    Why many strategies to "add value" often fail (hint: consider who actually DEFINES what's valuable)


    Working within boundaries - even across time zones


    Ideas for what you can have in place before you ever talk to prospective clients so that you can get them what they want - right out of the gate.


    And a LOT more.


    This was an incredible conversation and you're going to LOVE it!

SteveStewartMe ,

You know I have to love this

Okay, so I may be a bit biased. I love each of the hosts and love podcast editing.

However, anyone looking to edit podcasts for others should at least listen to Episode 3: How can I find my first client. Go. Now.
