Event Overview

Want to start your own podcast, but you're not sure where to start? This three-hour course will take you through the podcasting process from start to finish! Find out how to choose the topic of your podcast, recording and editing techniques, the steps necessary to publish your podcast on platforms like iTunes, and more.


The course will also include a recording and editing session, where you gain hands-on podcasting experience! Each attendee will leave with the knowledge necessary to launch their own podcast.


This extended edition of the course also covers additional apps, websites, software, and hardware for recording, editing, and publishing your podcast, allowing you the ability to create a podcast just about anywhere.


Course instructor Jaime Black has been podcasting for over a decade and working in broadcast for over two decades. In 2005, he launched Dynasty Podcasts, the first ever and longest-running music podcast in the City of Chicago’s history. During that time, he has produced over 1,000 podcast episodes. He also teaches entrepreneurship and freelancing for artists and creatives at Columbia College Chicago.


You are welcome to bring a notebook or laptop to take notes. I will provide mics and recording equipment. Also, I do have two cats. So if you have pet allergies, this workshop might not be for you.


This workshop will take place at Dynasty Podcasts Home Studio. No additional destinations are involved. This demonstrates how podcasting can be done from the comfort of your own home.

Laptop for taking notes

Prerequisites

Recommended for college students and older, interested in podcasting. No prior podcasting experience is necessary. Beginners welcome!

    This class was fantastic! I came into it with a clear idea already of what I wanted to do, and had already identified what areas I needed to improve my skills in, and Jaime covered everything. He breaks things down in a very easy to understand way and provides you all sorts of different options that could suit the budgets and tech skills of any podcaster. If you're in a very small class (or a class of one, like I was) you can also dive deeper on areas that are most relevant to you. You get a chance to do hands-on activities with recording and editing, and Jaime makes sure to send you a ton of resources afterwards so you can focus on what he's saying in the class rather than on taking notes. This was a great experience and I'm looking forward to putting what I learned into action!

    Good class with a knowledgeable and experienced teacher who clearly cared about the quality of what he was offering. The time flew by and I learned a lot. All the key information was given to us on a thumb drive at the end of the class which was very useful. Highly recommend.

    Overall great content if you are looking to operationalize a podcast. I was disappointed that the content wasn't more around recommendations for podcast content and voice recommendations. I wish we had more time to practice on the microphone this skillset. The directions, address and location of the course wasn't very descriptive. However, I did get some good ideas out of the class.

    As a small business owner I am always considering positive forward positioning with messaging and utilizing cost effective brand platforms including now podcasts. Jaime offers his huge body of experience with a defined sense of purpose and helpfulness with this course. Take my advice RUN don't walk to this class and begin to speak your truth.

    Jaime was amazing! He knows so much about podcasting, broadcasting and editing. I knew nothing about podcasting at all, and now I feel confident that I could host a podcast on my own.
    I was worried a 3-hour class would be too long, but the time flies and Jaime packs in so much info!
    Definitely highly recommend!

    I took the Podcasting 101 class with Jaime Black!! He is an amazing teacher and is very patient as he goes through each process step by step! I learned that creating a podcast is quite attainable. Jaime goes through the importance of planning and formatting your podcast. He also goes through the kind of equipment needed for optimal speaking and listening. He spends time showing you how to edit and then finally publishing. He is very thorough and he gives you a hands on step by step procedure and when you are done you have a 3-5 minute podcast you can use to practice for the class. I am so happy to have taken the class and Jaime is a wonderful instructor, who is EXTREMELY knowledgeable!

    Such a great experience! Ever since Jaime of Dynasty Podcasts posted this class on Dabble, I've been wanting to make time to take it. We covered a LOT of information but it was done in a really approachable, hands-on and fun way. The instructor has 13 years of experience producing podcasts and it shows. There are so many tools and various ways to explore, launch and grow a podcast that one can pursue at varying levels of commitment and costs. This top-rated experience really breaks it down and made it accessible and affordable to pursue. Highly recommend if you are considering launching a podcast!

    The Podcasts 101 course exceeded my expectations! We covered both conceptual and technical material—not just why but HOW to produce podcasts—and the instructor was very open to tangential discussions and questions, allowing me to guide the training toward what I was most interested in. If you are new to podcasting, with or without a background in other communications, this class is definitely adaptable to fit your needs.
