Podcasting with Samantha Turnbull


Anyone can make a podcast with a microphone and a computer, but creating a good one that people (beyond friends and family) listen to is a little more difficult.

This workshop will focus on what makes a successful podcast, with an emphasis on writing, producing, presenting and promoting. It will also include an introduction to editing, and the nuts and bolts of how to record and release your own podcast. This workshop is suitable for content-makers across all genres. Participants will need a smartphone and headphones.

Samantha Turnbull is the writer of hit ABC children’s podcasts Fierce Girls and Animal Sound SafariFierce Girls was number one across all categories in Australia on iTunes, and Animal Sound Safari reached top spot in the children’s and family category.

Sam is also a features reporter at the ABC and regularly produces her own radio features/documentaries including all sound engineering, editing and presenting (as well as writing and researching).
