They run their podcasts, keep ahead of the current podcasting trends, and actively connect with other podcasting feeds.

7. Zoe Yu – Zoe Yu is a professional audio and podcasting editor that founded a podcasting company in China. She has her Twitter account set up more like a Question and Answer forum and often answers questions on how to edit or post podcasts. In a recent post, she was telling a viewer how she felt long introductions take away from the quality of a podcast. She is a self-proclaimed expert in editing podcasts for broadcast, and you may be able to get some of your technical questions on podcasting answered on her Twitter page.
8. Adrian Ruiz – If you want a few laughs, as well as a few off-the-wall insights on how to manipulate sound, try this Twitter feed. He seems just to be a guy having fun with Lego characters and audio but claims he has a handle on how to efficiently edit audio and video. So you may pick up some tips here and there.
9. Roxanne Escobales – Roxanne Escobales works with charities and non-profit agencies and is a professional audio editor. Much of her content does not appear to be focused on the process of audio editing, but she apparently uses her audio editing skills to create great podcasts and audio programs about the causes she holds so dear. She is credited on her website as a journalist, producer, and media consultant.
10. B. Touch – B. Touch is an animator, video editor, audio editor, writer, multimedia developer, wannabe bodybuilder, the wealth of film/tv/music knowledge, and the host of the SSN Podcast, according to his Twitter page. Unlike some others we found in our search for audio editors and podcast experts, B. Touch’s posts all seem to be somewhat related to the podcasting theme and the quality of the feed.
11. Gadget Radar – Gadget Radar is an “award-winning” audio editor with 25 years of experience in professional audio editing work. They claim their experience has mostly been in radio and podcasting, but they have also done some audio work for video. They show video clips on their feed a lot, and they feature posts about other podcasts and tell their opinion of the quality.
12. Dan Pugsley – Dan Pugsley is a freelance sound designer, composer, and audio editor based in Somerset House in the UK. He features film shorts that illustrate the importance of high-quality audio in your audio and video productions, but I’m not sure he found any that pass the test.
13. Donk – Donk is a guy who claims to be a DJ and audio editor that lives in California. You can find his work on Direct Music Service, but we didn’t get that far.
14. JP Davidson – JP Davidson is a radio freelancer, podcast producer, and audio editor. He lives in Ontario, Canada and posts some video feeds on his Twitter account that focuses on audio quality. At least with JP’s site, you know the topic is going to be focused on audio most of the time. But it’s sometimes difficult to see what his point is. He posts a lot of content on GreenPeace, so I assume it’s cause he supports, but I couldn’t find anywhere on his Twitter account that addressed this.
15. Charles Gammill – Charles Gammill is a podcast producer, audio editor, and cat wrangler. We’re not sure what cat wrangling has to do with podcasting, but he added it as a credit so we thought we should too! Charles posted on April 8 that he was “grateful for my role as an audio editor, because of this sentiment,” and posted a quote from Ernest Hemingway about how people don’t listen well enough. Apparently, it was not only a quote within a quote, but a retweet as well.
16. Hens Zemmerman – Hens calls himself a “freelance audio editor and mixer, music production and special effects expert,” and has as his logo, a section of a photo of a 1970s cassette tape. He seems to be an active producer and audio editor so you may pick up a few tips from him. He was posting about some of the work he was doing for local clients when we checked out his site. He only has 873 followers but seems not to let this discourage him from doing his thing with frequent posts.
17. Chris Gillette – Chris Gillette states that he’s a freelance TV and film production technician, audio editor, and proud parent. He enjoys trying different techniques with audio and sharing it with his followers, all 427 of them.
18. Kerri Smith– Kerri focuses on editing nature sounds for her podcasts, and she had 3,321 followers when we checked out her site. She seems to have her act together more than many of the ones we looked at for podcast editing. At least her focus is almost solely on the act of podcasting, and she publishes regular podcasts via her Twitter site.
19. Chris Enns – Chris is a producer for hire. That’s all we know.
20. Mark Medina – A video editor and podcaster. His tweets are often about Apple products but perhaps you can learn some tips from him now and then.
