April 25th – 29th, 2021
Join other podcast enthusiasts from Northern Europe on this five-day podcast course with two of the best podcast trainers in Denmark.
Dorte Palle and Tor Arnbjørn will take you through all the steps of creating your own popular podcast.
Why you need to take the course
The demand for well-produced podcast content is growing bigger across the media and communicating industry. This course is tailored for professionals within communication, journalism, marketing and media production who want to get into the world of podcast production or develop their skills as a podcast producer.
The course takes place in Struer at Nordic Podcast Academy, where you will spend three intense, inspiring days with state-of-the-art equipment and facilities in Sound Hub Denmark – a hub for international sound professionals, innovators and experts.
You will move from idea to a strong concept and leave with a production plan and lots of hands-on tools for recording, interviewing, hosting, editing and distributing. After the course you are ready to start producing your own popular podcast.
Podcast experience is not required for this course, but we expect you to have a basic user knowledge about podcasts and experience with communication or storytelling from other channels and platforms.
The course focuses more on concepts than on technical aspects and equipment. You will be asked to bring your own podcast idea and project with you which you will pitch on the first day and develop into a strong podcast concept and production plan through the rest of the course.
