How does a podcast editor compete as apps like Descript become better at doing our jobs? What is it that you’re really offering? Tanner shares his insight on the future of podcast editing and why accountability as service is critical for survival.
Required reading for this episode: Accountability As A Service (AAAS): The Only Future For Freelance Podcast Editors.
Tanner Campbell of The Portland Pod bootstrapped his way from working at home serving independent creators to full-on studio space serving corporations and brands looking for an all-in-one solution.
A prolific writer, Tanner often posts his content on Medium. His article on the future of podcasting caught our attention. He points out that it’s not enough anymore to simply edit. You must offer something more to succeed in this business. A lot more than Descript can offer.
He gives us an insiders look into his business model, his perspective on the future of editing, and even some of the things he STILL struggles with today.
