For the main session

Break the Digital Disruption and make a Podcast

How to make a podcast – you need to start somewhere so let’s start with the basic 101 course for beginners.

The aim of this workshop is to explore the basic features of the Hindenburg audio editing program. The CMTO has been working in close partnership with the Danish audio company and have found it to be a great platform for podcast production.

Workshop facilitators will work through the basic features of the program, giving participants the ability to import, edit, clean and publish content: 4-5pm 24 November.
