So, You Want to Start a Podcast?

In June 2018, we launched the Learning Uncut podcast to showcase the great L&D work going on in Australia and New Zealand. We wanted to find practitioners who were challenging the status quo, trying new things and achieving great results for their learners and organisations.

While we are all avid consumers of podcasts, none of us had been involved in creating one before and we have learned a lot in the last 12 months since deciding to go on this journey.

This presentation will highlight the 'how-tos' of setting up a podcast series from the different perspectives of the 3 team members along with our tips, tools and anecdotes.
