Event Details

Learn how to set up a podcast, improve your production and presentation skills, and monetise it with Rowan Slaney, the Guardian’s podcast producer.

Podcasts have never been so popular – we’re at the beginning of a golden age and now is the time to get involved. The beauty of podcasts is that anyone with a microphone and editing software can tell stories and share their opinions. And there’s real money in it too – a good podcast can get sponsors fast, so a fun side project can become a source of income.

Whether you’re looking to get a new project off the ground, or improve an existing podcast, this masterclass will help you make your show stand out from the crowd.

Over the course of the evening, Rowan Slaney, the Guardian’s podcast manager and producer, will reveal the key things you need to know to produce and present a high-quality audio series. You will discover how to grow your audience and monetise your podcast.

Rowan will cover the dos and don’ts of production and answer any of your queries about podcasting. You will leave with a better understanding of how to make your dream podcast a reality, or how to improve your existing series to take it to the next level.


  • Ideas formulation: deciding on the theme of your podcast and writing a plan
  • Equipment: what you need and where to get it
  • The A-to-Z of recording and editing
  • Distribution: knowing your audience, building a community and networking
  • Getting your podcast onto iTunes and other platforms
  • Expert advice on how to improve your production and presentation techniques
  • How to monetise your podcast
  • Advice on increasing your audience and subscriber numbers
  • Scripting – and the art of the introduction
  • Q&A: an invaluable opportunity to pick the brains of one of the Guardian’s most experienced podcasters
