Podcasting For Any Size Organization or Budget


So, you want to start a podcast! That’s awesome – but why? And what format will it take? What’s your budget? Will you record in-house or use a studio? How do you find a studio? What gear do you need? How do you distribute a podcast?

The questions surrounding production can feel overwhelming and endless. Regardless of whether you’re an experienced producer and engineer or you can barely record a voice memo on your phone, you can create an amazing-and engaging podcast that fills a gap in the market and serves your constituents while being a powerful marketing vehicle for your organization.

Heather Mack and Alli Thresher are experienced podcast producers and instructors and between the two of them have recorded scrappy on-the-fly pieces and also produced sprawling, audio-storytelling epics for a variety of nonprofits and organizations.
