Gina Hyams, the writer, editor, gift designer and events producer behind Muddy Puppy Media has convinced me (okay, it didn’t take much) to teach two Podcasting 101 workshops in Western Massachusetts/Eastern New York this spring. (She had me at “the Berkshires.”) The workshops are designed for people new to the art of podcasting or anyone who has started on the journey but needs some help getting up to speed.
I will introduce you to the building blocks of a great podcast:
the art of hosting
perfecting a sound
achieving a tone
designing an efficient production structure and schedule
I will also address tech issues (all you need to get started is an iPhone and a computer) and share tips on how to build an audience through promotion and distribution.
The Podcasting 101 workshops are from 10:00am to 4:00pm on Saturday, April 30 at the Lichtenstein Center for the Arts (28 Renne Avenue in Pittsfield, MA) and on Sunday, May 1 at Time & Space Limited (434 Columbia Street in Hudson, NY).
Tuition is $150 early bird special through March 31 /$175 after April 1. Limited financial aid is available. To reserve your spot, please email Gina (noting your interest in the Pittsfield or Hudson workshop) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
So, who’s ready to be the next Marc Maron?
