Podcast, meet webcast. Tech in the Commons is going virtual!

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

Previously scheduled for March 26, this year’s first Tech in the Commons session, “Podcasting 101 for Nonprofits”, will now take place online April 2 from 10-11:30 a.m.

Led by Molly Beck, founder of, and in partnership with Comcast NBCUniversal, the workshop will focus on podcast development for nonprofit professionals and leaders.

Podcasting — similar to social media and blogging — can be a crucial tool in a nonprofit’s digital strategy. Beck will teach workshop participants how to plan, create and grow a new podcast, while seamlessly integrating audio into organizational content strategy.

The 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 a season 1 editorial arc
  • How to find, engage, and keep listeners
  • How to title the show and episode descriptions to help with discoverability
  • How to use recording and editing tools to make the 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

Before founding her own podcast production and hosting platform, Beck launched and built Forbes podcasts and ran marketing at Venmo. She is also the author of the career advice book Reach Out (McGraw-Hill).
