“Our appetite for podcasts continues to grow across multiple genres, led by compelling true crime stories with real impacts on injustice in our society. At the heart of such podcasts are strong stories that engage listeners, no matter their gender.” 2018 ABC podcast survey
Podcasts are exploding via digital media and streaming services. Thanks to digital streaming and an extraordinary range of different kinds of shows available, podcasts afford one of the most intimate listening environments today and a unique opportunity for organisations and businesses to showcase their stories. They can be listened to anytime and in a multitude of places and space: from planes and trains to automobiles. In Australia alone, according to the ABC, listeners are tuning in on average for 6.5hrs a week.
Workshop One: 10.00am to 2.00pm, Sunday 26th May. Laying the Ground, will cover the essential things you need to know: from a short study of podcasts, to developing your ideas, to essential equipment, audio production tools, to podcast hosting platforms and marketing.
Workshop Two: 10.00am to 2.00pm, Sunday 9th June. Developing Practical Skills, will take a hands-on first-steps approach to building your podcast. From drafting your scripts, to basic microphone and audio handling skills, to recording audio and using a multi-track editor.
