The aim of this series is to help you polish up on your existing skills, whether you’re new to podcasting or been in the game for a while and want to tighten up.
It could be that you’re still having jitters when you press Record, or maybe you feel like you’re not getting the most out of your interviews? We’ll address these sorts of things and more.
A fair question: I’m the content manager here at The Podcast Host Ltd, and I’ve been podcasting for a couple of years now. I’ve also presented news bulletins for radio stations and I do some freelance voice-over work from time to time. On top of that, I’m a voice actor for audio drama and occasionally narrate audiobooks.
As a result, I’ve managed to pick up a few things on the presenting side that I’d like to share with you. I hope you’re able to take something of use from this series, and it helps you become the best presenter you can be.
Over seven episodes we’ll cover the concerns often voiced by podcasters, old and new.
