Bonus session next week
I originally planned on having this session conclude this series, but I feel compelled to bring one more. There are a lot of resources available to podcasters. I’m going to share some of those next week.
Over the summer, we’ll be having our Semester 4. These sessions will be scaled back some between June and August. I am working on getting back to the original intent of this site and podcast, which is to create resources that are easy for people to get and consume.
One of the resources will be some tutorials/courses about podcasting. I’ll be using some of the content from the podcast episodes that we have done in Semester 3, but there will be much more content as well. I will be creating several levels of accessibility to these: some will be completely free and available, some will be for those subscribed to the newsletter, and some may be used in a paid/premium course.
I am doing some podcast production, and I’d love to help you with your podcast. As a listener of this podcast, I will give you a discount if you use the code ‘CSA’ when you inquire about one of the three packages on PodcastGuy.co.
