I am a four-time Hugo finalist podcaster and co-executive producer with nearly a decade of experience at The Skiffy and Fanty Show, including 5 years of Audio Editing. Currently, I am a freelance Audio Editor at BookRiot (All the Books, When in Romance, Read or Dead, Get Booked, For Real, Read Harder, and Hey YA). I am also the former sound designer/audio editor for Nightlight Podcast, which produces short horror fiction by Black writers. In a former life, I was the Director of Operations for a non-profit organization.
The best thing I ever did for my podcast was hiring Jen Zink to be my editor. She’s thoughtful, creative, and extremely attentive to detail. She never misses a deadline, and I can always count on her to do quality work. In fact, she frequently catches narration mistakes that I miss. I know I can rely on Jen to meet my very high standards and plan to work with her for many years to come.
Jen has been a knock-out since the first day we started working with her. She is responsive, delivers files on-time if not early, she makes our hosts sound as good as they possibly can despite occasional sound-issue shenanigans, and our entire team has nothing but good things to say about her. She’s also been helpful in working with our hosts to improve their recording techniques, and in working with our best practices as we update them. I whole-heartedly recommend her!
