Liz Gleeson (Podcasting 101 Workshop, November 2018)
‘A great all-round course. Balance was exactly right in that I got enough information to start experimenting but not so much that I felt overwhelmed or intimidated.’
Carissa Casey, Print Journalist (Podcasting 101 Workshop, November 2018)
‘I found this day really helpful in getting me thinking in a more focused way about what it is I want to achieve with a podcast. I also found it opened my eyes to so many different styles of podcasts, avenues in which you can take projects and the variety of options available. I learnt a lot in terms of set up, equipment and the software involved and I would definitely recommend this workshop for anyone just starting out.’
