Professionalise your Podcast | Book here for 15 June

Written by on 01/05/2019


This short Saturday morning course will help you bring your podcast to the next level. We will go over everything you can improve to make producing your regular podcast (or radio show) as easy as possible, whether it is live or pre-recorded.

Podcasts can improve on many fronts, including more attention paid to segment duration, speaking and interviewing skills, choice of music, use of technology, as well as maintaining overall quality while building an audience. We will answer questions people may have, give tips on how to work with others, and generally talk about anything people need to professionalise their podcast.
