Podcast workshop, Old Ambulance Station, Nambour
May 26 & June 9: 10am-2pm
Podcasts are exploding via digital media and streaming services. Thanks to digital streaming and an extraordinary range of different kinds of shows available, podcasts afford one of the most intimate listening environments today and a unique opportunity for organisations and businesses to showcase their stories. They can be listened to anytime and in a multitude of places and space: from planes and trains to automobiles. In Australia alone, according to the ABC, listeners are tuning in on average for 6.5hrs a week. Join international award winning radio veteran, locative audio storyteller and podcaster, Hamish Sewell, at the Media Makers Studio at the Old Ambo in Nambour for a two-part workshop on Podcasting. This is designed to clarify what’s going on in the world of podcasts and for you to learn the practical steps to getting started.
