What past participants are saying:


"Christina used her deep experience and knowledge to help our participants rapidly get confident with both the [podcasting] technology and good interviewing techniques. I would highly recommend Christina and Podcast Services Australia to anyone wanting their staff to learn about or get more confident with podcasting skills."

- Vision Australia

 

"[I loved] that we covered both technical and marketing/content sides of podcasting. I feel like I've stepped away with a lot of knowledge to holistically understand podcasting. Everything was useful, in particular microphone and set up work."

- University of Melbourne

 

"Thank you so much for the Podcasting workshop! The pace and information provided perfectly suited to my needs and I know the other participants felt the same. We all walked away inspired and motivated to give podcasting a go! You both have a very approachable vibe and are responsive to people's needs and questions making the learning process a stress-free and enjoyable experience. I would happily recommend your services to anyone looking to learn more about podcasting from the humble beginner to someone wanting to deepen their knowledge and practice."

- RMIT

 

"When I heard Christina and Aaron (from Podcast Services Australia) planned to hold a podcast course, I jumped on board immediately. Christina has run a weekly podcast for years now, so she really knows her stuff, and I wanted to learn from an expert I could trust. The course was fantastic. Heaps of valuable information, and insider tips to make podcasting fast and easy. The session on editing was super valuable because the free software isn't intuitive; you need instructions. Christina and Aaron provided great support materials, and a warm, friendly, professional environment to learn. Can't wait to launch my podcast. It is called Kath in the City." 

- Kath Walters, KathWalters.com

 

"The workshop was really great. Enjoyed it. Good sized class and the tuition was informed and open. It was a practical workshop, and I was impressed by the knowledge and experience of the speakers."

- Jenny, class participant

 

"The course really motivated me! I bought a microphone afterwards! There was lots of practical information about how to make it happen; made it feel accessible. The presenters were excellent. Thank you for a great course!"

- Sam, class participant

 

I’m happy to recommend this course to anyone who is interested in starting  a podcast or creating great audio content. The learning is comprehensive and well paced - even the intricacies of sound editing are made to seem easy. Christina and Aaron are a great team, mixing insight, expertise and a sense of fun that comes from a love of the medium. 
 
- James, course participant
