Have you been dreaming about starting a podcast? Have you been furiously taking notes while listening to your faves, jotting ideas you’ll be inspired by? Did you already take baby steps towards launching a podcast? Then this workshop is for you!
This workshop will explore how the classic Hero’s Journey works as a narrative tool and organizational guide for understanding a podcaster’s creative process from idea to episode publication. We’ll look at how aspects of podcasting mirror the stages of the Hero’s Journey, with all requisite trials, triumphs and tests.
You’ll trace your own Podcasting Hero’s Journey and walk away with a roadmap for getting started or thriving along the path to publication.
This workshop is recommended for anyone new to podcasting (no experience required!) and creatives who are transitioning into audio storytelling.
We're offering scholarships for this workshop. Learn more here.
