The challenge of getting broadcast quality podcast episodes

Let me ask you something - have you found yourself wondering how some podcast editors are able to edit through an episode in just one or two hours, while it can take you double, or more, to get the same result?

Or have you ever found yourself battling with noise and poor audio desperately trying to get the best out of a less-than-ideal recording?

Or perhaps you haven’t quite started your podcast production journey yet, but you’re eager to learn how to produce pro-level episodes so that you can start getting more listeners or more clients.

If any of this sounds like you, I’ve got something special for you today...

Your Instructor

Hi, I’m Joe Eftihiou (Joe Crow - The Audio Pro on YouTube), audio engineer, educator and founder of podcast production company, Claricast. I’m excited to guide you through the podcast production process and help you learn how to create pro-level episodes. I want you to be able to achieve the podcast sound that you’ve always dreamed of.

Discovering the power of podcasting

I spent 5 years studying audio engineering in college and university. After I graduated (with a bunch of student debt!), I took my knowledge to recording studios across the country over the next few years, before being introduced to the world of podcasting.

And boy how I wish I’d discovered podcasting sooner! 

Podcasting is an incredible medium for getting your message out into the world and capturing the attention of your ideal audience. It’s also a growing industry, and great quality audio is becoming more and more of a necessity in keeping listeners engaged. 

But very few podcasts sound as good as they could do and as a result, struggle to stand out and retain listeners.

I was able to transfer my audio engineering skills and learn more about podcasting through practice and the “YouTube university”, and eventually win clients and create great-sounding podcasts. 

I want to save you from the trial and error and the overwhelm with this course.

The struggle with learning podcast audio production today

It can be a real struggle for people like you to find quality and robust education on the subject. There’s a lot of conflicting info out there. And as for a lot of the courses and YouTube videos and blogs and such - 

  • They’ll often only cover certain aspects of the process, like editing for example, while ignoring the importance of capturing a great recording and then mixing and mastering to achieve a professional result

  • Or they might only scratch the surface of each element, or focus specifically only on one piece of software, and it makes it difficult to transfer the skills.

And that’s why I want to share this course with you so that you can learn the full process, without the stress and overwhelm, and help you make your podcasts stand out from the crowd.


The only course that you need to take you from podcast editing beginner to Podcast Audio Pro, that teaches the proven process that the pros use to create NPR or BBC level of quality.

Podcast Audio Pro will help you:

About this course

  • 6.5 hours of video content
  • 3 quizzes
  • Bonus content pack

Podcast Audio Pro is for you if…

  • You’re passionate about learning the skills you need to achieve your podcasting goals.
  • You’re tired of trawling through YouTube and blogs, trying to find the answers.

  • You’re willing to put in the work if you know you’ll get real results, but you don’t want to spend hours getting nowhere.

Podcast Audio Pro is NOT for you if…

  • You expect perfect results straight away. I will show you the door, and hand you the key, but you must be the one to walk through it. You need to be passionate about learning podcast audio production and be willing to practice and train your ears and skills after completing this course.
  • You’ve never touched a piece of audio software - you will need access to digital audio workstation software (such as Reaper, Pro Tools, Audacity, Adobe Audition, GarageBand etc.) and be able to use the basic functions such as split, delete, copy, paste, move, import audio, create track, using volume faders, opening menus/windows etc. This is so you can enact the techniques you’ll learn in this course in your software of choice.


Your questions about the course answered.

  • Is this course suitable for beginner editors?

    Yes. You will however need to have dabbled with a digital audio workstation (audio editing software) before, to get the most out of this course. This course doesn’t teach you how to use a specific piece of software - it teaches you transferable audio skills. However, I’ve included a lesson guiding you in choosing software if you're not sure if you're using the right one. If you don’t know how to use the basic functions of a DAW, you can still start this course and complete the first section. You can then get to grips with it in your own time before moving on to the editing module.

  • How long will it take to complete the course?

    The course is self-paced, allowing you to learn at a speed that works for you. On average, most students will complete the course within 4-6 weeks.

  • Do I need any special software or equipment?

    You’ll need a computer, a pair of headphones/speakers and digital audio workstation software such as Reaper, Pro Tools, Audacity, Audition, Logic, GarageBand or similar. You’ll need to learn the basic functions of using your software before getting started.

  • Isn’t AI making podcast editing and production skills redundant?

    No. AI tools can be used by audio engineers to supplement their work, or by amateur podcasters to save time/money. No AI tool can do detailed editing and produce the results that an experienced engineer can, though. If you want your podcast to truly stand out or you want to work with clients who want the best, authentic, human engineering is essential.

There are 2 types of people…

Some people shy away from taking action that will bring them personal growth. 

Others take action. They understand that investing in yourself is the best investment you can make. It stays with you forever, and it opens up opportunities that you didn’t think were possible.

By embracing personal growth and stepping outside your comfort zone, you pave the way for transformation.

And I know it can be nerve-wracking. I used to be apprehensive about investing in myself. But every single time I took the leap - I am so glad I did. And dread to think where I would be if I didn’t.

You CAN achieve your podcasting goals. You just have to take that next step.
