Do you have a brilliant idea for a podcast show, but find yourself struggling with where to start? Want to learn about the importance and necessity of building a podcast community? Are you just generally confused and intimidated about the technology necessary to have a quality sounding show? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this facilitated panel discussion is especially for you! Together, we will create a courageous space for all interested in gaining greater awareness about the topic by featuring local podcast panelists who recently launched their own shows. You will have an opportunity to learn directly from the panelists about what was holding them back from launching their shows, why finding community support and accountability was an essential ingredient to getting started, and gain solutions to some of your biggest podcasting challenges during a moderated Q&A session. At the end of the discussion, you’ll walk away with an inspirational community ready, willing, and able to encourage you to take that first podcasting step. The topics discussed work particularly well with participants who have flirted with the idea of launching of a podcast, but have yet to take the leap, along with seasoned podcasters who are eager to build community and support for the next generation of podcasters.
