Event description


Want to create a podcast but don’t know where to start? Do you want to improve the quality and reach of your existing podcast?

Podcasting is a medium that is fast growing in popularity. Anyone can start a podcast, but the challenge lies in creating a high-quality show that is engaging AND sustainable.

Led by industry experts, in this masterclass you will learn how to develop, launch and run a successful podcast from scratch -- step by step.

We know that learning new skills and new technology can be daunting. This is why our classes are kept to 10 participants maximum with at least two trainers per class, to ensure each student receives personalised attention and obtains a full understanding of the curriculum.

We provide all recording equipment for participants to learn with, and suggest equipment options for all budgets.

No experience with podcasting is required, however it is recommended participants come to the class with a rough idea for a podcast series.

Lunch, coffee, tea and snacks will be provided.

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 intensive! 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."



Who is this masterclass for?

Business owners, authors, speakers and thought leaders who want to use podcasting to strengthen their personal brand and increase their audience reach. This course will also be beneficial for educators and communications professionals who are looking to use podcasting as an engagement tool for their company or organisation.

How many participants will be in the class?

There will be a maximum of 10 class participants. We keep our classes small to provide as much personalised help as possible.

What equipment will we be learning with?

You will learn how to use the Zoom H5 digital recorder with high quality podcasting microphones. We will also show you how to podcast using a USB microphone and your laptop. If you already own a microphone and/or digital recorder, you are welcome to bring it.

I don't have any over-the-ear headphones!

That is ok, we have some spares available :)

I have another question about the masterclass!

Please email Aaron Heath: aaron@podcastservices.com.au with any questions; we'll be happy to help.
