What’s it about?

Podcasts are a great way to reach new niche audiences and build a loyal following. And with many podcasts relying on remote interviews, you can launch your podcast from home, for modest outlay.

So should you launch a podcast? Join this one-day online workshop and find out.

The hands-on training will take you step by step through the essentials of creating a podcast, from planning and recording to simple editing and sharing. All you need for the workshop is a computer with internet access, a smartphone or iPad, and a free podcast app. You’ll also need an idea for a podcast, which you can pursue beyond the day, or change when you’ve learned more.

The day is designed to keep the techy stuff to a minimum, so you can make the most of an interactive day of learning. While there’s only so much you can do in a day, this workshop aims to give you the thing that stops most people from taking the first step: Confidence. Yes, you CAN launch a podcast!

A PDF toolkit accompanies the workshop, including links to reasonably-priced microphones and other equipment.

Who’s it for?

Journalists, freelancers and creators from any background. No experience of audio recording and editing is required.

What will I learn?

The workshop is divided into three main sections: Plan, Produce and Promote.
