"Z2P" -- Zero to Podcasting

A special two day session at Podcamp Toronto 2008


A group of 'veteran' podcasters are collaborating to deliver a two day workshop called Zero to Podcasting (Z2P) this February as part the PodCamp Toronto program. The sessions will be a mix of campfire/circle discussions and technical presentations aimed at helping everyone, from newcomers to advanced podcasters, start from nothing and then learn and shake up the skills necessary to plan, prepare, produce, publish and promote their podcasts.


Z2P is designed to arm the absolute newcomer with the skills and ideas to start podcasting by the end of day one, and help with additional skills such as portable recording and establishing and owning their Internet presence during day two. Regardless of your level of experience, the program is designed to help establish, strengthen and refresh all of your skills.


The collaborators include Katherine Matthews and Rob Lee (Purl Diving), Sage Tyrtle (Quirky Nomads), Scarborough Dude (DicksNJanes), Michelle Sullivan (Aquinas8788) and Bob Goyetche and Mark Blevis (Canadian Podcast Buffet and many others).


The full Z2P program and schedule will appear on the PodCamp Toronto wiki Schedule page at a later date. A summary and sequence of the sessions appears here for your information:
