Who We Are

Hi, I’m Ross, founder and Chief Polisher at Podcast Polishing.

Ross and his baby, the baby is wearing headphones with a look of deep concentration whilst holding a pen over a pad of paper.
Critical listening training session with Daddy

I became a dad in 2013, and developed an interest in podcasts, especially being at that time, primary care giver, I had a lot of time with my hands full, so the idea of listening to stuff seemed like a really good solution to consuming information. I found loads with really fascinating podcasts about parenting but became distracted by the variable sound quality and felt it was getting in the way of some really interesting content. The sound engineer within me couldn’t bear to see such a waste, when to me the solution seemed so simple.

I decided to set up Podcast Polishing and help people, both advising on how to achieve better results and providing editing services. The journey continues, the podcasts get better.
