University of South Wales, Atrium, 86-88 Adam Street, Cardiff CF24 2FN


Get your new year off to a great start with our brand new, one day introduction to podcasting at the University of South Wales' radio studios in Cardiff city centre. Join our tutor, top radio producer and USW lecturer Steve Johnson, to learn the basics of what is an ever-expanding audio universe where niche is good, long-form is encouraged, and great storytelling is prized over all else. By the end of the day you will have recorded a short pilot of your new podcast.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Great examples of podcasts
  • Equipment needed for a minimum viable product (MVP)
  • Podcasting software/apps
  • Publishing/hosting platforms
  • Collaborating with others (inc. recording Skype calls)
  • Researching the sector, finding your niche.
  • Researching the topic, scripting & storyboarding
  • A studio visit
  • Promotion
  • Sponsorship, advertising and other routes to monetisation (aspirational/extension task for “high-flyers”)
