I’m running a one day podcast workshop this August in A4 Sounds. This two part workshop will cover everything you need to create, upload and promote your own podcast. We’ll provide an overview of the history of podcasts, and the current state of the podcast market. You will learn about different podcast hosting and distribution options, how to track downloads and what it takes to get a podcast into iTunes ‘New & Noteworthy’ category.
This workshop is suitable for anyone wishing to create a podcast or improve how their podcasts are created or distributed, and requires no special technical expertise. Whether you already have a podcast you’d like to improve, or are just a keen fan with an idea, this is the workshop for you.
What will the workshop cover
Part one of the day will be an overview of podcasting, covering different ways podcasts are made and distributed, and moving onto all the major monetisation routes – from advertising to Patreon, paid downloads, app purchases and more.
We’ll look at various hosting options and podcast creation pipelines, from self hosting with WordPress or Libsyn, to all in one services like Zencast, Soundcloud, ACast and audioBoom.
Part two will cover the process of creating a podcast, using free and low cost tools. Participants will work together to record, edit and distribute a podcast. They will learn through hands on practice, how to submit to the most popular podcast directories and apps.
The facilitator will be available after the workshop to answer further questions and technical issues that might pop up with your first attempts at making a show.
Participants to bring along:
- Previously recorded programmes they wish to podcast
OR ideas for a show they’d like to create
- Laptops to follow along with the practical portion of the class
A4 will supply all other necessary equipment & materials.
