Description

Learn the nuts and bolts of podcast production from two audio professionals, from choosing the right kit, crafting a beautiful soundscape, and monetising your work.

Podcasts are the biggest thing to happen to audio since the invention of the wireless - and the beauty is that anyone can do it. But how do you ensure your podcast stands out and spreads across social media?

In this evening class, audio specialists Jack Soper and Craig Templeton Smith will reveal the key ingredients to successful podcasting. They will take you through the technical know-how for producing slick audio, the editorial dos and don'ts, and give you an understanding into why audio is perfect for storytelling.

Whether you're looking to get a new project off the ground, or improve an existing podcast, this masterclass will offer invaluable insight into producing a high-quality audio series that everyone will want to listen to.
