The Podcast Institute
Ready to take the world by storm with a podcast?
Podcasting is a huge and growing industry. It’s a great way to directly influence the world with your message AND build an audience for your author brand.
Over just 3 weeks, the Podcast Institute online course will give you all of the basic skills you need to successfully setup, record, produce, and distribute your podcast. No experience necessary!
The best part: Our community of Christian writers and media producers will support and encourage you every step of the way.
This course will start from scratch and teach you how to setup, record, produce, and distribute a podcast. We’ll also workshop your podcast content, where you’ll have an opportunity to receive live feedback from real listeners.
We’ll help you to launch a podcast with minimal cost. We’ll have some recommendations to help you spend a few bucks to increase your sound quality and make your life easy, but you won’t need to spend thousands on equipment or expensive subscription services.
This is a quick and dirty, no-frills class. You’ll get exactly the information you need to get launched with a professional podcast, without any fat or sales gimmicks. If you follow the course guidance, you’ll be 100% prepared to launch a professional podcast available on all major podcast apps by the end of the course.
Course includes a workbook, live classes, access to recorded classes for one year, and a live workshop. You’ll have full access to the instructor for one-on-one questions. All live classes will use Zoom.
