Get Podcasting!

Since 2003, podcasting has been the voice of the people, providing countless opportunities for amateurs and professionals to shape the broadcast medium of tomorrow.  Join David Parish on a practical weekend course exploring the technical, legal and production know-how on what makes a great podcast.

– Ever wondered how to be legal with your music casts?
– What equipment and software do I need to get started and grow?
– What makes for compelling programming and how do I make a good host?
– Looking to move into full-blown radio and need to understand your sweepers from you stings and carts?

The course is split into two days: Technical & Production Techniques and Content Creation and Promotion/Distribution and is designed to give the student a well-rounded and thorough, practical knowledge of podcasting, streaming radio and broadcasting fundamentals.

Day 1: The Technical and Legal

– What is a Podcast and where did it come from?
– What are the key differences between a podcast and broadcast media?
– What do I need to operate legally?
– How can I achieve the best technical setup for my budget?
– Terminology in broadcast media and fundamentals of the medium

Day 2: Content is King

– How to schedule and structure a show
– Beyond Production and into Presentation – finding your USP
– Distribution and Promotion
– Practical exercise: produce a podcast under guidance in our tech lab

The course naturally has a strong music broadcast focus but will be equally beneficial to those looking to produce spoken-word podcasts with our without copyrighted music and sound beds.
