My name is Rachel Renee, aka @Lady_SnipeShot. I'm the Founder and Executive Producer of Sound Maiden.


After graduating from Los Angeles Film School in 2018, I sort of lost my way. At the time, I had just moved to Pittsburgh - a new town with new people and experiences. I knew I wanted to continue in the media industry but couldn't seem to manage networking with fellow filmmakers and production teams while working full time, saving for buying a home and managing my personal life. It wasn't until I started working as a sound editor for a new, local podcast called If This Goes On (Don't Panic), that I realized I had all the tools and know how needed to create my own podcast. After a failed interview with another media position, I decided it was time for me to work on my own projects. So, I dove in head first!

Right after making the decision and commitment to podcasting and producing full time, the Coronavius Pandemic hit the US and shut everything down. Rather than a hinderance, I made it an opportunity - a creative opportunity, putting all of my efforts into Sound Maiden which now has three very different, growing podcasts, all of which have been heard across the globe. 

My advice to you is, if you've been wanting to do something new...just do it! It's truly amazing what you can do

when you really put your heart into what you love!


Sound Maiden is a small podcast production company in Pittsburgh, PA. Currently, we have three podcasts in production - The Macabre Academy, God Games & Geekery, and Hope For Life With Bob Lenz. All three are seeing an awesome increase in listeners and generating interest worldwide. Each podcast can be found on all the major podcasting networks. 


As we grow, we realize there are still things we need. Podcasts, though easy and cheaper than most other entertainment mediums, still have costs for equipment, production, and hosting. Being that we are a small start up company, resources are limited. Any amount of support helps. We appreciate any and all donations.

If you are interested in supporting us, below is a list of our goals for the year!

  • Purchase new mics, stands and production equipment

  • Buy Sound dampening materials

  • Build a recording booth for indoor office

  • Purchase mobile recorder/mixer and mic

Our Big Goal: Buy a short bus and turn it into a mobile podcast studio!!

Thanks for visiting and supporting Sound Maiden and all of our future podcasting projects!
