Want to learn how to dream up and make your own audio podcast?

Then join Athena Media for a podcasting skills workshop designed to get you telling audio stories online. Full day workshop with limited numbers – just 10 in this session.

Helen’s podcast The Family of Things won Finalist in the New York Radio Festival and Awards 2019 while Pantisocracy won best programme at Celtic Media Festival 2018.


This one day workshop is designed for podcast beginners and will take participants from idea to online, showing people how to get their own audio show together and online. The workshop will cover how to record using a mobile recorder like a Zoom H4n and participants will be encouraged to bring a mobile recorder, if they have one, to the workshop.

It will introduce people to basic editing using Audacity and show people how to release their audio online using platforms like Anchor. The workshop venue is in The Digital Depot, The Digital Hub, Thomas St Dublin 8. *note: Workshop cost is €160, with a booking fee charged by Eventbrite. They cover your sandwich lunch and refreshments during the day as resources packs are provided to participants after the workshop. This venue is fully wheelchair accessible and has disabled parking, as well as courtyard parking which is fairly available given the workshop is a SUNDAY.
