Introduction to Podcasting
If you’ve got a great idea for a podcast, but need some help getting started, this is the session for you. A panel of three industry practitioners will walk you through your first tentative steps into the world of podcasting – how to come up with your idea and put it into action, what hardware you need to record, and what software you need to edit and sculpt your finished product.
This is a session not to be missed! We will end with a Q&A where you can get your podcasting questions answered by the panel.
