Podcast Rocket Launcher

It’s easy for your podcast to sit on the To Do list – a constant niggle that you know you want to take action on but it never quite makes it to the top of the list.

By the end of this course, you will have your podcast title, your artwork and music in progress by my professional partners, interview experience, your first episode (at least) recorded and your podcast will be ready to share!

You will:

Understand what makes a podcast

Develop your podcast concept

Talk software so you can decide the best choice for you

Be familiar with different styles/formats for podcasts

Know the rules (or lack thereof!)

Know what kit you need for your podcast

You will define your creative brief by meeting with my music and voiceover partner and my graphic designer partner.

They will then create your music intro with voiceover and your show artwork that will represent your podcast.

There will be time to work on your podcast as well as working within the group to get feedback and inspiration from one another.

The student numbers are limited to make sure we can really work together to get your podcast launched.

Debra has been INSTRUMENTAL in getting my often thought of podcast out there. I may have had an inkling of an idea, but Debra gave me focus, oodles of talent, took care of details that I hadn't even thought of and most importantly, got the job done!
