About This Course

Would you like to start and host your podcast show?

This course will explain exactly what you need to do to start your own podcast show! We look at what equipment to get, what software to use, recording your show, show format, editing your podcasts, choosing music, legal issues, your hosting options, how to upload and submit your podcast to itunes and the best directories out there and how to monetise and market your show.

We start right from the very beginning. No previous experience of any of the above is assumed.  We look at what a podcast is, the history of podcasting, the benefits of getting into podcasting and how to do it. Every step of the way is broken down. We don’t just ‘tell’ you, we show you. The videos are clear, step by step, right from your podcast idea right up until submission and promoting your show.

Podcasting is an amazing way to promote your brand and for you to promote yourself and become a leading authority in your chosen niche. There are far more blogs on the internet then they are podcasts. As a marketing medium and a direct channel of communication to your target audience, in terms of price comparison, and effectiveness of audience attention – very little measures up to a podcast! You have the undivided attention of your listener, they subscribe to your show, you have the opportunity to literally ‘talk’ to them … what other medium or method can compare to this?

A podcast can open new doors and opportunities unlike any other. This course looks at the most cost effective methods to achieve a podcast – your host has done all of the legwork and research for you. Save yourself a lot of time effort and energy by taking this course and learning exactly what to do and let us walk you through it.

You can can start your own podcast show this week (literally) with exactly what you have right now. We do look at different microphones on the market, and we look at which one to go for. We completely demystify and break down the process.

If you want to start your own podcast show – this course will show you exactly what to do…. step-by-step. There is an extensive editing section – so you know how to edit your podcast and we look at the various means of monetising your work.

    A Classroom Of Information


    Great information I am so glad I found out about anchor before I took this course, because I would had walked away from podcasting. This is a good course to master podcasting but for beginners there are lots of ways to use your phone for everything. Despite my opinion, Lisa is a great teacher but sometime less is best.

    As I was completing the course, the radio station I work for asked if I would host a podcast. Thanks to this course, I know exactly how to proceed! The course teaches every aspect of creating a podcast. Lisa, the instructor is delightful, thorough and takes students through the journey with her – like hands on experience.

    A worthwhile investment of time


    I was pleased with this course and I write that without qualifications. I would have wasted a vast amount of time and maybe some money if I had gone it alone but now I am in a good position to start my podcast. The host took a well-paced, stepwise approach that I found effective and I am glad that I purchased this one. Not much more to add, there was a ton of practical advice and if you are serious about getting a podcast going this is a great way to learn the ropes!

    Excellent course


    Covered about everything I could have thought to ask and then some. Equipment, how to record, how to decide what to record, how to host, how to edit, where to list, and so on. Easy to listen to, step by step walkthroughs. Really great.
