Podcasting for Beginners

Dates: 11 – 13 September 2018.

Cost: 15,000 KES

Podcasts have become a powerful vehicle for storytelling, spotlighting urgent issues and challenging conventional thinking. The best podcasts, of course, do all three.

This affordable, three-day workshop peels back the secrets of creating a successful podcast. (Hint: It’s harder than it sounds.) Featuring veteran podcasters, this intensive, hands-on experience will allow participants to explore every facet of podcasting, including audience development, creative content and business models.

Participants also will create their very own show during the workshop. Everyone will walk away with an up-close and personal sense of what it takes to make a podcast that’s both fun to produce and attracts a loyal audience.

The workshop will feature entrepreneur and podcasting pioneer Jazzani Minae (better known as Jazz), the co-host of Benchwarmerz, one of Kenya’s longest-running – and most popular – podcasts. Along with his deep knowledge and experience in podcasting, Jazz’s trademark energy and sense of humour will make the workshop a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Joining Jazz will be Kevin Mwachiro, a former veteran BBC journalist who has captured the compelling stories of ordinary Kenyans through podcasts such as Nipe Story and CancerPod. Kevin’s two decades of experience as a reporter, storyteller, activist and trainer means that he brings to his podcasts a perspective that is both creative and original.
