You have either heard of podcasting or you have a favourite podcast and you’ve thought, "I should do that!” But where do you start? How does it work? What skills do you need? 

This remote workshop is designed for anyone who wants to understand the basics of podcasting. It isn't specific to ‘professional’ or ‘personal’ projects so everyone is welcome. (*Future in-person or one-to-one workshops may be available for more advanced users with a foundation set of skills and/or a research/creation project ready to go. If that’s you, please feel free to inquire)

We will discuss the differences between podcasting and radio, explore how to capture audio effectively using the tools you already have, and consider easy and free ways to get your podcast on services like Spotify and Apple Podcasts.

If you are ambitious, you will be able to record and launch your first podcast episode almost immediately after the workshop. Seriously.

Join us over zoom. Feel free to use whatever microphone you have on hand, even your phone, and grab a set of headphones to get the best sound (over ear headphones are best for podcasting if you have them but we’ll discuss how to avoid the trap of buying unnecessary gear, and you can decide on that later).

No experience necessary.
