From inception to publication; this practical session delivered by Emily Elias, journalist and producer of the Oxford Sparks podcast series, is a whirlwind tour through the basics of how to share your research in an engaging manner through podcasting.

The session will introduce approaches to podcasting, present inspiration from a range of different podcast styles, and take you step-by-step through the basic technical skills of recording, editing and publishing audio files; you’ll have the chance to develop an idea and have a go recording it with support and feedback during the day.

Places limited to 15 participants.

Please bring your laptop (not an iPad), a pair of headphones that can plug in to your laptop, and make sure that the free audio editing software Audacity ( is installed on your laptop.
