How To Prepare Your Podcast Launch

  • 919 Lilac Drive North Minneapolis, MN, 55422 United States (map)

Podcasting has become an incredibly powerful tool for communication and thought leadership. In this workshop, you'll glean key insights on how to start your podcast with the best foot forward.

This workshop is NOT a technical how-to. It is aimed at helping you prepare your content, interview guests, and present effectively.

Ian Levitt, producer & owner of Studio Americana, will discuss how to get the most out of your recordings, what to consider before recording or publishing, proper microphone technique and other key elements to a great sounding podcast.

Josey Stafford, host of the Under The Veil podcast, will delve into how to prepare yourself and your guests for an episode recording and how to approach your podcast with a mindset for success.

Bring questions! A question and answer session will follow each presenter.

Come for a tour of Studio Americana at 4pm, followed by the presentation at 4:30 with a taco bar and happy hour to follow. Tickets are limited, so check you calendar today!

Ian Levitt, Owner of Studio Americana, spent 20 years in the broadcast radio and television industry. He has worked both on the air as a show host and behind the scenes as a production director, producer and commercial writer. Ian is now using that experience to help others be at their best when creating audio content.

Josey Stafford is the Founder of Sixpence Events and Planning, where she is the head planner, specializing in day-of wedding coordination. In January, she launched Under the Veil, a podcast for brides-to-be, wedding vendors, and anybody curious about what it takes to create a great wedding. It's a series of fun, free-spirited conversations with vendors and couples that offers a uniquely intimate glimpse into the world of Twin Cities weddings.

Studio Americana launched in May of 2017 on the former radio site that housed stations such as KQRS, Radio Disney, and more. It has been converted into a professional podcasting and livestream studio. The mission is to help create impactful podcasts and audio content in a way that lets the content creators focus on their content, not technical details.
