Event description



"Excellent! Super practical, easy to follow and encouraging. Thank you!" - Stephanie Irwin, Host of Fashion Originators Podcast


Ever thought about launching your own podcast?

But not sure where to start?

Podcasting is one of the most effective ways to build an audience online and grow your business, and according to Edison Research, it's the fastest growing media channel.

Podcasting is also an excellent excuse to connect with some of the world’s most interesting people. How else would you get the chance to have in depth conversations with best-selling authors, entrepreneurs, TV personalities, athletes or adventurers?

But the process for getting started can feel daunting.

What equipment and software should you use? How do you land interviews with big name guests? How do you get your show loaded into iTunes? And even after your show goes live, how do you promote it so that people actually listen to it?

Luckily, this one-day intensive course led by one of London’s leading podcast hosts, will cover the simple steps to properly planning, launching and growing a successful podcast from scratch.

"If you're in London, don't miss this up coming 'Crash Course in Podcasting' by my friend Mark Leruste." - Chris Guillebeau, NYT Best-Selling Author and Host of Side Hustle School Podcast


  • Set yourself up for success by getting your podcast concept right
  • Choose the best recording equipment, editing software and hosting platform for your budget
  • Land interviews with thought leaders, bestselling authors, and influencers in your field
  • Prepare so that you have captivating and memorable conversations with guests
  • Edit your interviews to produce high quality and professional sounding audio
  • Develop an effective launch strategy
  • Crack the itunes algorithm to improve your ranking and get more downloads and subscribers

Additionally, you’ll get insider knowledge on creative, field-tested marketing strategies for growing your podcast, so that once you’re live, you can start to build an audience of raving fans.

By attending, you’ll save yourself months of trial, error, and frustration, and you’ll leave with a clear strategy for publishing your first three episodes.


You might be a marketing professional or an entrepreneur interested in podcasting to grow your business, or you might simply want to share your message with the world or do something fun on the side of your regular job.

WARNING: Although you do not need any technical expertise or previous experience in podcasting to attend, guests are expected to actually take action on this course.

Please do not attend if you are not willing to commit to this.


If you are willing to roll up your sleeves and take action, absolutely! In fact, previous graduates have gone off to start their own successful podcasts (e.g. Time 4 a Pint, Dad Like Me, Thought Starters, How Did I Get Here?, Fashion Originators, etc.).

Some graduates have even gone on to become iTunes top podcasts such as Man Talk and Always Free (see bellow) and some have secured five figure sponsorship deals.

This full-day bootcamp was created as a direct result of working with 300+ budding podcasters over the last three years, who've expressed a clear desire for a full-day immersive experience:

"I literally came as a beginner, I now feel so motivated and inspired. Thanks Mark!" - Arzu Ozel

"Super interesting overview and very actionable advice! Huge thanks!" - Johnny Miller

"This seminar was so helpful and such a confidence booster. Thank you!" - Lottie Clarke

"Absolutely brilliant. I highly recommend Mark's Podcasting Bootcamp for anyone who wishes to start, build, grow, develop and understand the world of podcasting!" - Amrish Shah


Mark Leruste’s journey towards his dream career started when his video CV "A Dream Job Would Be Nice" went viral on YouTube and helped him land a position as country manager at the Movember Foundation. There, Mark raised €2.8 million for men’s health and inspired 110,000 fundraisers to sign up, winning multiple awards along the way. Four years into the job, Mark couldn’t ignore his entrepreneurial itch anymore and took the plunge to found The Unconventionalists, a weekly podcast and coaching and training business, helping organisations and individuals find their voice, amplify their message and scale their impact.
