Sound Engineering & Audio Editing
We have built our Podfire studios to give your recording the best level of audio quality possible. The equipment and rooms were chosen and built to provide crystal clear audio using professional broadcast quality tools.
You can rest assured that when you come in to share your stories with us, they are being recorded properly.
After recording finishes, your podcast is sent to our audio editor Leigh who, using more than ten years of experience, crafts your raw audio files into a podcast you can be proud to share with the world.

Authority BuildingPodcasting, used effectively alongside other digital content such as written articles, YouTube videos, and social media, can be a fantastic tool to grow your authority within your industry and help you become known as an industry leader or influencer. The more content you share, conversations you have and opinions you explore within your chosen field, the more your audience will grow to respect your opinion. Podcasting can be one of the simplest ways to produce and distribute anything from 10 minutes to hours of content quickly and easily, and Podfire makes the process as easy as possible to produce professional quality content in a short amount of time. Just come into the studio, speak your mind and let us handle the rest.
Grow Your AudienceGrowing an audience is as much about the quality of the content you put out as the places you choose to distribute that content. Podcasting is a great platform continuously growing in popularity with more that 700,000 podcasters actively releasing episodes around the globe... That number growing from 550,000 in 2018. You can now listen to podcasts on Spotify, Apple Music, Stitcher, iHeartRadio, Google and countless other apps. If your aim is to grow your following and build an audience of loyal fans for yourself or your business, you should already be considering podcasts as a great tool to add to your repertoire. At Podfire we specialise in marrying quality content with maximum distribution to help you sound great to the largest audience.
Connect & NetworkOne of the big reasons many people podcast is to build their network and connect with others in their industry or area of interest. Being the host of your own podcast series has the benefit of allowing you the means to invite any number of guest speakers onto your show. Maybe you have been looking for a way to get an introduction to someone you respect in your industry but have never had the opportunity to make the connection. Now you can invite them into the studio for an open conversation that benefits you both as more relevant content for the public. Podfire provides an incredibly simple solution to your networking problems by providing the studio and editing on your own podcast. Simply invite your guest/s to the studio where they will be treated to a red carpet, friendly staff and a comfortable studio space to sit and record. Then leave the editing and distribution to us. You'll receive a link to your finished podcast as soon as it's ready.
Share the Knowledge & Have Fun!Besides the business benefits of podcasting, it can be a lot of fun! It is incredibly rewarding to share your knowledge and opinions with an audience of monthly listeners, and inviting guests onto your podcast is always a good chance to just get together for a laugh. Perhaps being a solo host isn't up your alley and you would prefer a table of two or three people each time you record? Tell some friends you're thinking of starting a podcast and see what they think! Maybe they've been thinking of starting one too but didn't know how. It is not uncommon for a podcast team of two of three people to interview guests or speak each week amongst themselves about a topic. Just remember... it's fun! Podfire's comfortable studio and friendly staff make the recording an editing a breeze. Just show up, speak your mind and wait for your brand new podcast to be distributed wherever you like.
