Podcasting for nonprofits: Who knew it could be this easy?

Have you ever dreamed of making your own podcast, but didn’t know where to start? If you answered yes, then this event is for you.

Join us Thursday, March 26 for a one-of-a-kind event, “Podcasting 101 for Nonprofits.” Led by Molly Beck, founder of, and in partnership with Comcast NBCUniversal, this year’s first Tech in the Commons session will focus on podcast development for nonprofit professionals and leaders.

Why podcasting for nonprofits?

Podcasting — similar to social media and blogging — can be a crucial tool in a nonprofit’s digital strategy. In “Podcasting 101 for Nonprofits,” Beck will teach you how to plan, create and grow your new podcast, while seamlessly integrating audio into your organization’s content strategy. You’ll leave with the content hacks and technical tools that you need to start a podcast that moves your KPIs forward.

This workshop will cover:

  • The podcasting landscape and the type of show formats that are popular now
  • What works best for creating eye-catching show art
  • How to plan out your Season 1 editorial arc
  • How to find, engage, and keep listeners
  • How to name your show and episode descriptions to help with discoverability
  • How to use recording and editing tools to make your audio sound great
  • How being a guest on other podcasts can help raise your organization’s profile, plus templates you can copy/paste when approaching other podcasts for cross-promotion

Your community is waiting for you to launch a podcast — it’s time to get started!
