Anyone can launch a podcast – but with two million other shows competing for listeners, you will need an edge to turn an idea into a chart-topper. Renowned broadcaster Edie Lush is here to help.
We live in a golden age of audio. Unlike television, film, and radio, the podcast medium gives every aspiring storyteller a way to cut through the noise and reach an ever-expanding global audience.
Whether your taste leans towards the pioneering journalism of This American Life, the unmissable cultural conversations of The High Low, or the startling and innovative sonic landscapes of Love and Radio, podcasting is a playground where creators can communicate directly with listeners, sharing ideas and stories without the eye-watering costs, gatekeepers, or technical skill bar that restrict access to traditional broadcast media.
But standing out in the marketplace is not easy. As every podcaster knows, your competitors included some of the best funded and most experienced broadcasters and commentators of our time.
So how do you go about turning your dream into a reality?
Hosted by veteran broadcast journalist and renowned podcaster Edie Lush, this three-part livestream course will guide you through the fundamentals of devising, producing and launching a podcast series, with insider advice to save you months of research and ensure you don’t make mistakes that could hold back the potential of your show. We’ll help you hone your editorial, journalistic, and storytelling skills to gain a competitive edge and reach heights of excellence. And no less critically, we’ll help you develop a sponsorship model and get noticed – growing your audience and your finances to ensure your series is around for the long-haul.
