Heritage organisations are in the business of telling stories. And there is perhaps no better way to get your story out there than with a podcast. Podcasts are designed to be listened to at your own leisure, they provide ample space for an in-depth discussion online, and they can help you build a personal connection with your audience.
Starting your own podcast might seem like a daunting prospect, but in this episode, we want to show you how easy it can be. Join Heritage Digital and three esteemed guests from the heritage sector as we discuss what you’ll need to get going on your podcast journey, including the ideas and the tech, and the questions you’ll need to ask yourself along the way.
For this conversation, we’re joined by Amy Sykes, Development and Digital Engagement Officer at Bodmin Keep; Daniel Watkins, State Rooms and Guides Manager at Alnwick Castle; and Michael Netter, Professional Services Officer at the Institute of Historic Building Conservation. You can find links to their own podcasts below, as well as all tools mentioned in the episode.
