You are not alone
in wanting to use your voice
to make good change

If you are:

  • new to podcasting
  • need the confidence to relaunch
  • creating a new podcast
  • want a refresher

The Podcasting Workshop could be what you need for sound foundations for good podcasting.

This workshop is built on the original foundations laid by Seth Godin and Alex Di Palma in the original Akimbo workshop. They understood that it’s not just about the tech but how we create change and the environment in which we take the leap that makes the difference.

The Podcasting Workshop is available in three formats:

COURSE

Online self-paced course over 35 lessons.

  • Start anytime
  • 35 lessons

COHORT

  • Spring and Autumn
    8-week cohorts

INTENSIVE

Full workshop material with one-on-one coaching tailored to your development needs.

By the end of the workshop, you’ll be confident and ready to launch your podcast, clear about who it’s for, why you’re doing it, and how to create good audio.

All programmes include lifetime access to the monthly PODcall with past and present participants to help you keep going, get better and stay fresh.

Our guidelines are:

  • Contribute more than you ask
  • Be kind
  • What is said here stays here

Course: n/a as you will not be sharing your work on the platform

Intensive: you will only share your work directly with me, within our coaching contract

You do not need previous experience or a high tech-level to participate. We start simple, and there is no such thing as a silly question.

You will need a computer to record and edit your audio and access the internet.

A microphone and headphones are useful but the exact type will depend on how you will be recording and where. You can delay purchasing any new equipment until we discuss options in the workshop. Contact Steve if you have specific questions.

For Cohort and Intensive: We do live calls via Zoom.

Course: Ongoing access to the course material

Cohort: for nine weeks in total, with ongoing access to the lesson material

Intensive: as agreed within the proposal, with ongoing access to the lesson material.

All programmes have lifetime access to the monthly PODcalls
