Podcasting: A practical guide

Learn how to plan and produce effective audio podcasts that engage your audience.

Producing a podcast is simple but on this hands-on workshop you will learn the tips and tricks of creating one that people will actually enjoy listening to.

We'll consider questions such as: What makes a good podcast? What's the best format for your show? What equipment do you need? What are the practicalities of producing your show?

You will have the opportunity to evaluate a range of podcasts, as well as record, edit and publish your own.

I really enjoyed the workshop and picked up some useful tips - the enthusiasm of the trainers inspired me to give podcasting a go.
