Have an idea for a podcast …

Join Lost in the Stacks co-host, Charlie Bennett, to learn the essentials of podcast production through hands-on design thinking and lean startup methodologies. ZERO to PODCAST is designed to help you move from creating one-directional materials (brochure, signs, lecture-style classes) into a community-building, storytelling mode. Podcasts are engagement with community, so whether you’re starting your own or helping others get started with theirs, this empathy-based workshop will have you ready to go.

The technical stuff doesn’t have to be scary. Learn some tried and true tricks to record your session, edit your audio clips. We help you get ready with a free, online class prior to the workshop!

8:45 – Session 1: Are You Listening? (Will They?) Use the power of EMPATHY to span boundaries and build community by harnessing innovation.

10:15 – Session 2: What’s Your Story? Podcasts don’t happen in a vacuum, and they don’t happen without a compelling story and an audience who wants to listen. So what’s your story?

11:30 – Session 3: Rapid Prototyping! Prototypes can help you get moving and share your ideas.

12:30 – Lunch + Rapid prototype! Lunch is provided

1:30 – Session 4: Iterations and Perfection It’s never perfect the first time! Feedback and remixing can help you get over perfection paralysis and start publishing.

3:00 – Session 5: What’s the Plan? Set yourself up for success. Create a plan you can begin to implement tomorrow morning.

4:30 – Happy Sharing Hour Share your plans, get some feedback, grab a beverage, and have some fun!
