I'm an award winning host, editor & producer of interview or conversation podcasts + I edit, compose original music & sound design for scripted podcasts.
Between 2008 & 2020 I created & hosted a handful of well known local arts podcasts, which partnered up with music festivals and recorded on location during City of Kitchener outdoor events. In 2020 I pivoted to create podcasts for the Los Angeles-based film festival, Channel 101, where I interview some of the brilliant minds behind animated shows like 'Twelve Forever', 'Rick and Morty', 'Tig n' Seek' and so on!
I'm currently the podcast chair of Channel 101's non-profit org. and exec. producer for our network of shows. Additionally I edited conversations for the podcast 'And Sometimes ... Why? with Rob Szabo' (2019 to 2021).
I'm ready to (technically & creatively) produce your bold and exciting new podcast, strategize the content output, plan the big release, prep scripts & copy, do research on all guests & topics, recruit additional talent, tie it up with a bow of theme music and let's not forget - that boring ol' editing... and so much more!
Whether you're an independent, brand/entrepreneur or a company, anything is possible when it comes to making a podcast! You need to entertain the listener, make it immersive, pay attention to detail and be unique. Let's find out just how much we align and can make magic together!

"Todd Donald was the conversation editor for my podcast “And Sometimes ... Why?”. He edited 60 episodes over 1 1/2 years and was relentlessly responsive, meticulous and delivered every edit on schedule. He condensed 2hr+ conversations to under 1 hr, without ever feeling like anything was lost. He consistently delivered edits that maintained momentum and energy while staying on focus for our podcast brand."

"Todd Donald is the best kept secret in audio editing. He's a fantasic editor and composer and a. delight to work with. He has a great ear and wondeful comedic timing. My only fear in giving this testimonial is that he'll get too busy and not have time for my projects."

"Working with Todd is a dream! His timing and sound design are SPOT ON and make character and story come to life and jokes ten times funnier, maybe a hundred times. I wish he was editing and composing for this testimonial because you'd cry and the heartfelt parts and laugh out loud at the funny parts and it would all flow seamlessly and be turned in on time with notes perfectly and happy addressed and you'd have the music stuck in your head for days.
