> 18:30 - 20:00 | Podcast Academy: Why to podcast (authentic storytelling)
“Storytelling defeats numbers, It’s about authenticity, sharing, and connection.”
Podcasting has been on the rise in recent years with more podcasts being produced and the number of listeners going up more than ever. A lot of the talk around podcasting focuses on how to record and edit episodes. However, podcasting is much more than that. Doing a podcast entails finding your own voice, creating a story with it, and establishing an intimate bond between you and the listener. To be able to understand these aspects of podcasting, we need to look into why we produce podcasts in the first place and why storytelling matters.
In the first session of this three-part workshop series on Podcasting, Brussels-based producers Seden Anlar and Sarah Diedro Jordão are going to explore the value of having an authentic story and a sense of identity and the power behind owning your story. Recognizing that authentic storytelling is essential in growing an online following, the session is going to provide all the ‘why's’ about podcasting that will help you become a storytelling genius and reveal all the steps necessary to help you emotionally connect with your audience. Whether you've been wanting to jump onto the podcasting bandwagon, or if you already have a podcast but you'd like to take it to the next level, this is the workshop for you.
