Services

Podcast production and consultancy

With production of almost 400 podcast episodes under my belt, I have abundant experience to help you develop your podcast idea; identify, reach and develop your audience; and integrate your podcast with your other activities and services.

I have developed a range of capacity building workshops that range from supporting people new to podcasting and unsure if it is for them and their organisation; through to getting your podcast off the ground with its own identity and voice. Bespoke needs can be supported too. These can be delivered in workshop settings or via webinars.

I have several clients, mainly in the voluntary, community and not-for-profit sector, for whom I produce podcast output including Sporting Heritage CIC, Insole Court, International Association for Community Development, MVAI4N, and Wales Council for Voluntary Action.
