RWA OWL: Podcasting to help with your Author platform

Podcasting is a direct approach to new readers and listeners. As a free worldwide platform, consumers listen to podcasts at home, work, while exercising and while travelling. In this course students will be able to look inside this wonderful world of podcasting from behind the microphone. They will have a chance to investigate the different aspects of podcasting as a listener, guest and host. 

The course will cover podcast requirements, use of free and paid software, interview techniques and how to launch and release a show. Podcast listenership has increased at an exponential rate worldwide leading to growth and opportunities for new shows. The establishment of new stations and platforms in Australia has lead to a growing awareness and acceptance of the platform in this country, thus increasing listenership.

Like a blog, a podcast can be personalised to suit the unique nature of the creative artist. By participating and sharing with others on this platform you can grow awareness of your brand, increase audience reach and share more with your current fan base. 

If you simply want to know more about podcasting, have considered being a guest or have aspirations on making your mark with your own show then this course will provide basic information to assist in your decision.
