Podcasting Hands-On Intensive
What You'll Learn
Have a great idea for a podcast, but aren't sure where to start? Join us for this all day, hands-on workshop to learn all of the ins and outs of podcasting.
In this fast-paced class we'll take you through the basics of choosing the right recording gear and apps to begin recording. Then, we will record some audio with our equipment and provide different scenarios of potential podcast recording environments. After that, we'll take the audio files and learn how to edit, EQ, filter, and add bumper music to your first podcast. Moving on, we will go through detailed overviews of uploading podcasts, creating feeds, website hosting podcasts, and promotion ideas.
