Podcast train 100 academics in 3 months? No problem!

You know us. If we’re not making podcasts, we’re talking about them. So imagine our delight when the good people of Northumbria University challenged us to train 100 of their academics and staff to be completely podcast ready, remotely (naturally!), in just 3 months.

What motivated Andrea to get the training?

Well, obviously, we jumped with joy and got straight into designing a bespoke series of training sessions that would take an absolute beginner from novice to podcaster in just 3 workshops (with a little bit of homework thrown in for good measure as payback for all our university assignments of old. Did I just say that out loud? I mean, to help re-enforce the workshop learnings…).

So, starting in May, we’re unleashing our crack-squad training team of Steve and Adam to deliver a whopping 51 training workshops to the eager Northumbria crowd, teaching them everything from podcast set – up and recording, to editing, publishing and promoting their soon-to-be podcasts.

Not such a bad way to kick off Bengo’s 4th birthday month! Happy training Northumbria!
