Podcasting Mentoring and Training Sessions 2024

We’re back podcasting and offering podcast mentoring, training and consultancy in 2024 after a break last year while our director Helen Shaw took time out to complete an MSc in Climate Change, Policy, Society and Media. If you’re starting a podcast, or trying to work out how you make your existing one better talk to us and book a session with Helen. Storytelling and storytelling arcs are key to good podcasting, along with sound quality and an engaging host. We’ve been making podcasts for nearly two decades and we were early innovators in podcastingi with a proven track record in audio production and award-winning audio shows. We’re working again with UCD in 2024 on their digital skills module and offering ‘The Art of Podcasting’ and ‘Storytelling Online’ for researchers. Explore our podcasts including the lovely Iceland-Ireland series Mothers Blood, Sister Songs hosted by Irish composer Linda Buckley on www.mothersbloodsistersongs.com
