Podcasts are increasingly popular, with ‘Serial’ ‘S Town’ in the US attracting tens of millions of listeners. Technology means that programme-making is widely accessible and is bringing a new world of on-demand audio to all types of audiences – big and small.

This one-day workshop covers the production process from A to Z – taking it ‘from idea to ear’. It looks at how to refine the original idea, and the technical demands of recording and producing a podcast. It explains what’s needed to make a programme and how to keep the audience listening.


  • Planning for podcast production – editorial and technical
  • The differing types of online audio programmes
  • Recording – equipment and technical guidelines
  • Editing and production – instruction and guidelines
  • Polishing the finished product (branding, music, podcast platforms).
