Paula Cordeiro
Last night the PODCAST saved my life
In this workshop I will (try to) answer several questions, all related to podcasts, audio and voice. Often I ask myself why podcasts are suddenly full on without, however, being very popular. It seems to make no sense, but then I try to explain: I think what could be the possible business models for podcasts in Portuguese, without being dependent on the reputation of its author. Based on these issues, I will tell you about the reality of podcasting and share some tricks and strategies for creating a podcast, starting with the use of our voice as a tool, through the buzzword of storytelling and ending the digital tools we can use this process. How to create something interesting in a universe full of ideas? How to create a stimulating content for my podcast? You can be innovative? I can speak and how can I do? What tools exist to make a podcast? How to promote my podcast?
