‘I felt that the fusion of Helen’s knowledge of podcasting acquired from being a pioneer of the medium , her ability to convey some of the more nebulous aspects with clarity and enthusiasm married with John’s technological nous was a winning combo, looking forward to close reading the notes this weekend and getting my first podcast into the ether.’
Anne O Neill (Podcasting 101 Workshop)
‘I thoroughly enjoyed the day. The studio setting in Windmill Lane was perfect. The course brought together a very friendly, creative group of people, with different levels of skill and experience. Teaching was well paced and easy to follow for someone like myself with very rudimentary technical skills. I learned exactly what I needed to begin producing my own podcasts and I was introduced to a range of equipment to get me started.’
