So, You Want To Start A Podcast?

Thursday, May 23 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

ATB Entrepreneur Centre, Calgary

What goes into producing a podcast? Do you need expensive equipment, a sound engineer, or a sound-proof studio? Not really. Heck, you can get by with just a smart phone and a recording app if that’s all you have — but what goes into a podcast from idea to iTunes super star?

 In the time it takes to eat your lunch and wash it down with your favourite soda Michael Dargie will walk you through the steps of coming up with show concepts; a complete breakdown of how he produces and distributes his two shows; what works and doesn’t work when inviting with guests; finding the win-win and securing sponsors; and some other cool ways to distribute and monetize podcasts.

 All this in one lunch hour. Maybe you’ll want to bring two sodas.
