Need help with a Podcast?

As you know I left my job at the end of July to spend more time with my family.

To earn a living, I have started a company to edit and produce podcasts.

From basic podcast edits to full handling of all post-production tasks including show notes and publication.

I’ve even found that doing all of the work setting up a podcast for clients is quite popular. It’s not hard, just time consuming for busy people with other work to prioritise.

 So if you or someone you know needs a podcast edited or any podcast admin done, drop me a line at dave@brightvoxaudio.com or check out my site at https://brightvoxaudio.com/

Episode edits start at $15, lock in introductory pricing now!


In our experience the best way to experience the bedtime stories of Sleepy Time Tales is with some type of headphone or earbud, but they can be cumbersome and uncomfortable.

So we’ve partnered SleepPhones, manufacturers of headphones designed specifically to sleep in! They use a thin speaker fitted to a comfortable headband and have options from the cost effective wired headphones to the convenient Bluetooth model and will work with Sleepy Time Tales to improve your night’s sleep.

Sleepy Time Tales Merch and Stuff

I’ve been putting up a lot of new designs on Teepublic

Not all of the designs are Sleepy Time Tales branded, actually most aren’t, so you can support the podcast without needing to emblazon the logo on yourself. 😊
