It is for leaders with positive voices and the power of connection. It's time to stand up, speak out & make a difference in the world.

What you’ll get out of this course

The Podcasting Workshop will provide you with the tools and resources to take the leap and create your own podcast

We’ll cover every step of the process from conceiving an original idea for a podcast series to publishing your finished episodes.

Sharing your voice

Podcasting is the generous act of showing up, earning trust and authority because you care enough to raise your hand and speak up.

Stop dreaming and start doing

Have you been talking for years about that podcast you want to start?

We've found an effective way for anyone (especially you) to get started in podcasting. We've worked with more than three thousand people learning to create their own podcast.

Build community

Independent podcasting can be lonely. The most valuable part of The Podcasting Workshop is the community itself. Share your journey with others who have the same goals you do. Many of our workshop graduates are still in touch years after commencement. Small cohorts help this.

Steve Heatherington

Workshop Director

I will be teaching the workshop through recorded material, and live sessions, plus interacting with you in the student hub discussion board.

I have years of experience helping people become podcasters. Usually they also discover the side benefits of podcasting in their life, business and relationships - communication, skills, confidence and clarity about the change they want to make in the world.

I worked for more than 3 1/2 years with Alexandra DiPalma, and Seth Godin as Head Coach for The Podcasting Workshop when it was part of Akimbo. I am now leading it forward into its next phase.

My passion is to help people with something to say, get their message out in the wild.

I have something of an affinity with tech, plus an insatiable curiosity. Problem-solving is my default mindset. I can often be heard asking my computer, “So why are you doing that?” We can find a solution to most podcasting problems.

As well as being a shepherd to podcasters, I am also a shepherd to alpacas. We are based in a valley in South Wales, UK, with a herd of 36 alpacas, which inspires my podcast, Alpaca Tribe (over 230 weekly episodes).

I think life is too short to make, or listen to bad podcasts.

I look forward to helping you find your voice by using it.

What people are saying

        In all of my years of schooling, I did not experience such joy in learning as I did in The Podcasting Workshop. I was safe — no, encouraged — to be wrong. My colleagues brought out the best in me. I made something I’m proud of. I’m unstoppable and energized. Thank you.

        I’ve been blogging weekly for 6 years. When I decided to do The Podcasting Workshop, I needed a roadmap and a supportive community. I’m an education cynic. The workshop is the best kind of professional education. It was perfect. It’s amazing that the roadmap works for total novices. If you’re considering the workshop: DO IT.

        I was curious about podcasting but had no idea where to start. The Podcasting Workshop took a raw beginner, gave her short daily lessons, surrounded her with great coaches, and let her be supported by a friendly and helpful community. I now have a podcast and my new workshop friends have podcasts. We did it!

        The Podcasting Workshop should be renamed to The Anti-procastination Workshop. Before I enrolled, I'd been planning to create my podcast for about two years. At the end of the workshop, just 35 days after, I launched a podcast that I'm proud of. The magic formula is the combination of the inspiring lessons, the incredible coaches, and Alex and Seth

         It was an extraordinary journey to be part of this workshop. I haven't only learned about podcasting, I have evolved other skills such as giving feedback, listening to others, and most importantly, showing up!
