What you will need

You should have an idea (or ideas) for a podcast already partly developed. As mentioned above you’ll need to have basic audio recording and editing skills. It would be very useful if you had already recorded some interviews before the course, but not essential.

Ideally participants will bring their own laptop with audio editing software of choice installed. We can supply if necessary.
