So You Want to Start a Podcast…

Date: 12/01/2020

Time: 5:30pm
Where: LMHQ, Virtual,

The podcasting industry has never been more prolific. From politics to true crime to dating, there’s something for everyone. And, hey, you have interesting ideas and something to say — how hard could it be to start a podcast of your own?
Turns out, it’s a bit more complicated than you might think. In this workshop, Rachel M. Ward, a podcast producer and editor with more than a dozen years of experience making audio for Gimlet Media/Spotify, NPR, and public media outlets, will take you through the process of developing and producing a podcast. She’ll review the different types of podcasts (i.e. fiction vs. narrative, chat vs. produced), what makes podcasting a good medium, and precisely what making a podcast entails (staffing, technical decisions, publication, promotion, and more). You’ll come away with a clearer perspective on podcasting and an understanding of what it takes to get your podcast on the air.
