We Are Sound Media and we help people just like you to become influential podcasters.
We work with businesses, brands and individuals to create amazing sounding podcasts with a clear strategy and format, to make sure it does exactly what they want it to.
Whether you’re just getting starting or an existing podcaster in need of a boost, we’ll tailor our range of services to come up with exactly the right package for you.
Whether it’s for your business, personal brand, or a little side project, we specialise in helping people get their podcast off the ground. Our Launch packages start at just £350 and feature hands-on one-to-one help to get your show out there to the world. We’ll guide you through the strategy, format, all the knowledge you need, equipment and technical help, recording a trailer, setting up audio hosting and submitting your show to the podcast platforms like Apple and Spotify.
We tailor the best possible launch package to your requirements and situation, so the best next step is to book in a quick call so we can come up with the right solution for you!
We have some four decades of experience working in radio. Audio is pretty much all we know. We live it, we breathe it. If you’re looking for someone to help with the editing and production of your show, look no further.
We work with dozens of podcasters – ranging from taking care of their editing so they can concentrate on their business, right through to producing remote interviews or real-life recording sessions.
One size doesn’t fit all in podcasting, so we prefer to put together a tailored solution personalised to your needs rather than just throwing a price at you – so please get in touch so we can find the best fit for you.
Knowing how to push your show forward can be difficult. Sometimes you know what you want to achieve, but you’re not sure how to get there… other times you can just start to feel like a content production line, churning out episodes without any clear direction on what you’re looking to achieve.
We can help. Our growth and development packages range from a professional aircheck-style evaluation of one of your episodes through to a full strategic review of your show, including a refocus of your aims and goals.
If you need help moving forward, talk to us.
Our exclusive Premier Package is a full mentoring service, where our founder James personally guides you through the successful launch of your show. We’ll work together on every element of your project, leaving nothing to chance. It really is the ultimate option if you want your podcast launch to be the very best. Spaces on the Premier programme are strictly limited – please enquire for more details.

Sheffield has an amazing scene of real ale and craft beer pubs. If you like a really good pint (or maybe two-thirds), then it’s the city to be. Our founder James set up Sheffield Hopcast a few years back with three pals from the city’s beer world. In each episode, they try out beers both old and new and try to get around some of the brilliant pubs and bars
Singing The Blues
Our founder James is, for his sins, a big Sheffield Wednesday fan. In fact his first ever steps into podcasting were as a guest on a Wednesday podcast. He’s since set up his own with a local football journalist - Singing The Blues - which has a strong focus on audio quality and football-led content.
We’re a pretty open bunch at Sound Media so thought you might like a little peek into James and the team in action producing recordings, editing podcast episodes and working with some of our lovely clients.
