In the DIY world of independent audio fiction, there is no one right way to make a podcast. From ensemble cast dramas recorded in studio with live foley, to setups made entirely at home on the cheap with things like remote recording and sound effect libraries, our panellists are here to give you the swiss army knife of creative skills you need to get started on making your dream a reality. We’ll be discussing everything: from recording, sound design and production, to writing, performing, and the oft-neglected art of directing audio drama. Come with questions and an open mind, and don’t hesitate to find our panellists afterwards.
