It's time
to share your voice

Learn by doing

The Podcasting Workshop provides the tools and resources to take the leap and create your own podcast.

Includes: podcast episodes, videos, personalized exercises and discussion from Alex DiPalma.

Share your voice

Not as a way to make big dollars (blogging didn’t do that either). But as a way to share your ideas, to lead your community, and to earn trust.

Podcasting is a proven technology. But it’s still early, the market remains wide open. It’s an open mic, a chance for people with something to say to find a few people (or perhaps more than a few people) who’d like to hear them say it.

Now more than ever

There’s a real need for leadership, for positive voices and for the power of connection right now in the world. We can speak up, stand up and lead, on whatever project is dear to us. We can create the future we want to see.

The way forward is through. Through empathy and through practice. We are each charged with standing up and telling our story, a true story of possibility, as we weave together a better future.

We’ve all seen firsthand the effect of a powerful story and how much we rely on trusted voices to help us move forward. The magic of podcasting is that the door is open for you to become one of those leaders.

The Podcasting Workshop in a nutshell…

Alex DiPalma, podcast producer and co-founder of Domino Sound, and Seth Godin, best-selling author and host of the Akimbo podcast, created The Podcasting Workshop to provide you with the tools and resources to take the leap and create your own podcast.

Who’s it for?
This workshop is for anyone interested in creating their own podcast. Our graduates include entrepreneurs, freelancers, artists, non-profit leaders, teachers, corporate linchpins, writers…

We’ll cover every step of the process from conceiving an original idea for a podcast series to publishing your finished episodes.

The workshop doesn’t promise that you’ll build a profitable or popular podcast, instead it’s about organizing and connecting a community of passionate people eager to find their voice and make a difference.

How does it work?
The Podcasting Workshop has three elements:

  1. The lessons

Alex DiPalma and Seth Godin have created 25 lessons comprised of podcast episodes, video instruction, and text-based prompts. The lessons build on each other to progressively grow your confidence and podcasting knowledge. They are posted on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.

What we cover:

  • Listening assignments: learning from the best
  • Training on recording equipment
  • Training on how to conduct remote interviews
  • Developing a topic for your podcast
  • Developing a format for your show
  • Positioning yourself
  • Identifying and booking guests for your podcast
  • Learning audio editing
  • Adding music to your podcast
  • How to publish/distribute your podcast
  • Telling stories that resonate with and engage your listeners
  • Creating a long-term plan for your podcast
  1. The prompts

Every lesson comes with a set of questions that challenge you to explore how the lesson applies to your own work and a call-to-action: to share your answers and insights on the discussion board.

  1. The conversations: The heart of this workshop comes from connecting with your peers via the 24/7 discussion board. It comes when you support each other on this journey. You can expect a significant level of helpful feedback and the more you contribute, the more you will grow.

We also have optional live community calls led by coaches. This time is for sharing wins and asking questions of the coaching team and discussing with your peers.

Throughout the workshop, you will have the support of trained coaches who will challenge you to go further and dig deeper.

What is the time commitment?
The duration of The Podcasting Workshop is 5 weeks.

You should expect to spend about 1 hour a day on the workshop. Your time will be spent diving into the lessons (posted every day Monday through Friday), conducting interviews, editing audio, posting your work, giving/receiving written feedback, publishing podcast episodes, and engaging with your global peers.

What technology is required?

  • Computer – Desktop or laptop
  • Internet access
  • Zoom – To participate in the live coach calls we’ll be using Zoom.
  • Camera and microphone – You can begin with built-in equipment on your computer, but in time, you may want to upgrade your equipment. We will provide advice to help you make the best choice.

Share your voice

Podcasting is the generous act of showing up, earning trust and authority because you care enough to raise your hand and speak up.

We’ve found an effective way for anyone (especially you) to get started in podcasting. The Podcasting Workshop has helped more than three thousand people reach their goal and launch a podcast.

It’s not about the tech. The tech is pretty straightforward. Instead, it’s about the journey, the cohort, the support of people like you doing this work.

Alex DiPalma is the producer of dozens of podcasts (in fact, she produces Seth’s podcast). Alex brings her experience and empathy to this community, opening the door for you to stop dreaming and start doing.

Inside The Podcasting Workshop, the creativity is electric. People from all over the world, from 18 years old to 60, learn how to create a podcast they can be proud of. Inside our workshops, people don’t just learn. They do it. If you’re ready to explore having a podcast, this workshop will open the door and help you launch.

Learning the technology is the easy part. It’s the peer support, the community and the bias for shipping that really matter.

Seth has said that his decision to blog is one of the best he’s ever made for his career. If you’ve considered that this might be your moment to leap into this still-new medium, we hope you’ll consider committing to The Podcasting Workshop and joining the podcasting community on this journey.
