Do you have something to say? From true crime to deep dives, from fascinating fiction to engaging interviews, podcasts are the best way to reach your audience, and to tell your story. Armed with nothing more than a microphone and a little know-how, you can reach people all across the world, and keep them company on their commutes, entertain them as they do the dishes, or fascinate them while they’re at the gym. And that’s not all — experience with podcasting lets you record audio books, lectures, diaries and drama too!
The world of podcasting has never been larger, and it has never been easier to get started. So how do you create your own podcast or audio book? How do you take your idea, find your voice, and make it happen? How do you record and edit? How do you build an audience, and make your show stand out?
Over the course of this two-hour class, Alastair will be your guide as you learn:
- What podcasts are, and how they work
- The podcast landscape in 2016 and beyond
- How to bring your podcast from concept to production
- Branding, identity and promotion
- The basics of audio production and post-production
- Hosting and distribution
Podcasting gives you the opportunity to make your voice heard, to share your story, to talk about your passions, and to build a community of like-minded people. You’ll leave the class with a road-map that will lead you forward, no matter where you are in the process. No experience is necessary — even if you’ve never heard a podcast before, this class will teach you what you need to know to get started.
This is a two-hour live class, presented by story expert and award-winning podcaster Alastair Stephens. You’ll be able to chat and ask questions live, and then, after the fact, you’ll also receive a link to a downloadable packet in which you’ll find video and audio recordings of the lecture, along with notes and a transcript of the key points. Those files are DRM free, and you’ll be able to keep them, watch or listen to them as often as you like, and copy them to any computer or device that you own.
