The podcast training course was a fantastic introduction to all things podcast! Not only did it introduce me to the relevant software and equipment needed to record, edit and publish a podcast, it also included vital tips on interview techniques and how to hook in the interest of your listeners. Myself and my colleagues have since launched our own podcast - Sounds of the Sanctuary - providing listeners with a tour of Redwings Horse Sanctuary and stories about our work and the rescued residents we care for.
