The This Is How We Podcast Series

I am seriously pumped for this!

Since our first event last year, I have been dreaming of an event that allows podcasters to share their work in a way that is helpful to other creators.

And finally it is here! This 3-part series will give you ( and I ) the opportunity to meet, mingle and learn from podcast creators that are doing the most.

This Is How We Podcast is a series of in-person events bringing podcasters to my microphone followed by a presentation from an industry expert. Think marketing, audio production and data analytics.

All three events will take place at Latitude Aparthotel in Sea Point, Cape Town and I cannot wait to see you there!

Here is what you can expect on Thursday 4 April.

Bioscope Brasse - Jody Felton and Ross Solomon - made the Apple Podcasts list of Shows We Love in 2023. How did they do it?

The guys will share the in’s and out’s of how they make their podcast and how they keep it fresh after doing it for so long.

Then, Francois Retief from IONO.fm will guide us through a presentation on how to understand podcast analytics and what to do with the data.

DATE: Thursday 4 April
TIME: 17:30 for 18:00

That is not all! Thanks to our event partners, Podsqueeze.com, Riverside.fm and Rode, attendees could be going home with cool goodies too.

Be there, get involved and stand a chance to win a brand new Rode microphone!
