Podcasting Bootcamp (5-week workshop) @ Montréal | QC | CA

Do you have an idea for a podcast you’d like to produce? In this workshop, we’ll take your idea and put it through a variety of exercises that will help you find your main focus, craft your story effectively, plan your production, figure out your workflow and solve all the technical aspects in between. On top of that, throughout the weeks, we’ll be practicing the art of interviewing. So, think of it like an intensive bootcamp for you to become a better podcaster and for your project to come alive.

Having at least one specific idea for a podcast is required for this workshop.

Note: We highly encourage students to register for this workshop as a team of two, because making a podcast as a team is much more realistic and fun than doing it alone.

5 sessions of 2 hours. The registration fee covers all 5 sessions.
