So you want to be a podcaster? This course will prepare you to start your podcasting journey on the right foot!
The medium of podcasting has very few limitations - great podcasts can be short, simple and minimal, or long, complex and heavily produced. We’ll cover the whole spectrum of podcast types, and you’ll have an opportunity to narrow down which approach will work best for you.
Many podcasters quit after a few episodes (podfade) because they didn’t know what was involved. We’ll make sure you avoid common pitfalls. You’ll learn how to find and connect with audiences, and build community around your podcast.
Podcasting requires some skill and equipment, but mainly it’s passion, time and persistence. This course will help you understand your goals straight from the start, and set you up for success on your journey.

The class was very helpful in providing a strong framework to start podcasting. It was also practical and the opportunity to share ideas a useful catalyst for planning.
