From Zero to Podcast: Exploring the Why and How of Launching a Podcast
Have you ever listened to a podcast? If so you are among the 112M of Americans who have listened to a podcast in their lifetime. And this percentage is going up, by 11% a year. Podcasts are creative, mobile means of sharing a message, exploring a topic, delivering news, and providing a source of infotainment that doesn’t require wifi or video, and so keeps listeners company during commutes, downtime, errands, exercise, and adventures.
With all of this mind, should you consider creating a podcast? Why or why not? And, how hard is it to create one? Will you have to hire a team or take a class? Can you monetize a podcast? And will it serve your broader impact goals?
These are a few of the topics we will cover in this special workshop! Feel free to tweet any specific questions you have to @innov8social.
