About This Workshop

For thought leaders with a need to amplify their authority and expand their reach, podcasting is quickly becoming one of the best ways to communicate your ideas, your passion, and your unique insights to an engaged audience. In this interactive workshop, we will review all the aspects of launching your podcast. You'll learn the importance of well-planned launch, as well as the keys to recording a professional sounding episode. Additionally, we'll dig into the best places to market your episodes once they are live.

The well-being of our employees, students, clients, instructors, and guests is our number one priority here at General Assembly. We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation very carefully and are adjusting delivery of our programs.


Due to the current health concerns, all GA short-form events, workshops & bootcamps will temporarily be held online - including this one.


Registered students will be notified 24 hours in advance of this program with information on how to log in to the Zoom Meeting Room and other tools you’ll need for the session. Registration for this class will close 2 hours prior to the session start in order to allow all students ample opportunity to have the technology enabled.
