The biggest podcast network in Asia, Podcast Network Asia (PNA), offers a simple and affordable growth and editing subscription service for podcasters across the globe. Its newest product, Podmachine, is an AI-powered system that helps podcasters reach their fullest potential with minimal cost.
As of March 2022, PodcastIndex.org reports show that there are over 4 million podcasts in the world and in 2021 alone, 1.7 million podcasts were created. However, a good chunk of independently created podcasts that were created likely stopped producing content because the real problem of podcasters is not the limitation in tools and resources but the lack of time and guidance to edit and grow their shows.
As the most experienced podcast network in Asia, PNA has helped 265+ podcasts in Southeast Asia solve the problem of podcast editing and growth.
Normally, it takes around three to four hours to edit a single hour-long podcast episode. On top of that, marketing collaterals to further promote a show takes around one to two hours to make. Finding guests, sponsors and partners is also tedious work that one-man podcasters usually struggle with.
This privilege is usually experienced only by podcasters that have a network or organization to help them. However, only a select few will ever have that chance to join a network hence PNA created a platform that democratizes these privileges so more podcasters can enjoy having a great team that helps them edit and grow their podcast for an affordable price – Podmachine.com.

Podmachine is also powered by a 24/7 AI assistant backed by well-experienced Podcast Managers that have helped hundreds of podcasters in managing their podcasts across multiple categories and formats.
“We’ve seen that the best podcasts thrive long-term when you have the best team helping the creator nurture the community and it takes a village to grow a podcast,” says Podmachine’s Founder and CEO, Ronster Baetiong
Podmachine is available in three different plans: Basic for $49.99, Pro for $149.99, and Elite for $399.99. The Basic plan is perfect for existing podcasters who don’t want to edit their episodes, Pro is made for new podcasters who need help in creating their concept, sound design, and marketing strategies while the Elite plan is for advanced podcasters who do video and content repurposing.
