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.

Computer Requirement

This is a hands-on class where you'll "learn by doing" - therefore you'll need a computer (Mac or PC). If you need any particular software installed, that will be detailed below. Not all programs require special software so if there isn't any detailed listed below you will only need a computer with an up-to-date web browser.

Your laptop will be used for hands-on audio editing and sweetening throughout the class.


The instructor will be demonstrating with Garage Band software, but what you'll learn can be applied to any audio recording and editing applications.

Who Should Take This

Anyone who wants to learn how to make a podcast to promote their business, share their opinions, and communicate with the world in an all day, hands-on course.
