A podcast informs its audience engagingly and conversationally and lets the listener multitask by playing it in the background while doing other activities. This genre of publishing platforms has become increasingly popular in the last few years. Would you like to start your own podcast? This course covers planning, recording, editing and promoting your work. Before breaking down the podcasting process into easy steps, we lay out what you need to start producing and establish the benefits of doing so. We go through various terms and definitions and explain how to select the most suitable topics before formatting and structuring episodes.

The course then delves into budgeting to help you find the most cost-effective podcasting methods.
