Mark Deal and Steve Stewart, co-founders of the Podcast Editors Club and the Podcast Editor Academy, expand on the surprising findings from the 2020 Podcast Editors Survey. The good news is that the rates and the value in this post-production industry are trending upward. If you haven’t seen the reveal, https://www.facebook.com/groups/podcasteditors/permalink/3827398697348849 (watch it now).
We also discuss the limitations of the survey, what DAWs are correlated to higher income and why, and what else we’d like covered in the 2021 survey.
