Advanced podcast training workshops for researchers

Research Podcasts are delighted to announce a new series of advanced podcast training workshops! 

Aimed at those who have completed our introductory training, these three courses will take your podcasting knowledge to the next level. We have courses on advanced editing, presenting and marketing all led by experts with industry experience. You can choose to do one, two or all three of our advanced courses with a view to launching your own podcast at the start of the 2023/4 academic year.  

Each workshop will run online from 10am to 1pm, with a maximum of 6 participants to ensure a highly personalised and practical session. 

“There has been a very positive response to our Introduction to Podcasting workshops with many participants excited about launching their own podcast ideas. We have had several already do this but for those who want more support, this is just the next step on their journey to improving their engagement and impact through podcasting.”
