Power to the Podcaster: Finding your audience in a crowded field, Workshop, Overlook East
Podcasting is a powerful way for people with diverse views and experience and limited funds to tell the kinds of stories that are too often ignored. The trouble is, creating a podcast is easy. Finding an audience is hard. Our experienced group of facilitators will give you tips and tricks of the trade and give you small-group advice on how to make your podcast a success.
