‘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.’

Alan Fox (Podcasting 101 Workshop, June 2018)
‘The podcast workshop was full of excellent content introducing us to a huge range of podcasts to listen to and learn from. The technical demonstration was very helpful as a starting point as was the advice to begin with pilot projects and then critique and improve. The advice was very practical and empowering. It was an excellent experience.’
Mary McFadden – Music Teacher (Podcasting 101 Workshop, June 2018)


‘I felt that the fusion of Helen’s knowledge of podcasting acquired from being a pioneer of the medium , her ability to convey some of the more nebulous aspects with clarity and enthusiasm married with John’s technological nous was a winning combo, looking forward to close reading the notes this weekend and getting my first podcast into the ether.’
Anne O Neill (Podcasting 101 Workshop)

‘I thoroughly enjoyed the day. The studio setting in Windmill Lane was perfect. The course brought together a very friendly, creative group of people, with different levels of skill and experience. Teaching was well paced and easy to follow for someone like myself with very rudimentary technical skills. I learned exactly what I needed to begin producing my own podcasts and I was introduced to a range of equipment to get me started.’
