An Akimbo Workshop with Alex DiPalma
Not as a way to make big dollars (blogging didn’t do that either). But as a way to share your ideas, to lead your community, to earn trust.
Podcasting is a proven technology that is still in its infancy. It’s an open mic, a chance for people with something to say to find a few people (or perhaps more than a few people) who’d like to hear them say it.
And podcasting is the generous act of showing up, earning trust and authority because you care enough to raise your hand and speak up.
Seth’s podcast, Akimbo (produced by Alex), is in the top 1% of all podcasts worldwide, and as a producer Alex has worked on dozens of other groundbreaking podcasts as well.
Seth Godin and Alex DiPalma have run The Podcast Workshop four times, helping more than a thousand people launch their podcasts. We are thrilled at the results.
Inside The Podcast Workshop, the creativity is electric. People from all over the world, from 18 years old to 60, learn how to create a podcast they can be proud of. Inside our workshops, people don’t just learn. They do it. If you’re ready to explore having a podcast, this workshop will open the door and help you launch.
Learning the technology is the easy part. It’s the peer support, the community and the bias for shipping that really matter.
So many people have asked us to repeat the workshop, we’re going to run it again.
Seth has said that his decision to blog is one of the best he’s ever made for his career. If you’ve considered that this might be your moment to leap into this still-new medium, we hope you’ll consider committing to The Podcast Workshop and joining Alex, her coaches and Seth in this 35 day journey together.
In all of my years of schooling, I did not experience such joy in learning as I did in TPF. I was safe — no, encouraged — to be wrong. My colleagues brought out the best in me. I made something I’m proud of. I’m unstoppable and energized. Thank you.
The Podcast Workshop will teach you, inspire you and connect you to peers who will help you bring your work to fruition. In as little as 20 minutes to an hour each day, you can learn to make a podcast.
With podcast episodes, videos, personalized exercises and discussion from Seth and Alex, TPF provides the tools and resources you need to take the leap and create your own podcast.
The Podcast Workshop has simply changed my life. Alexandra DiPalma and Seth Godin are the most generous mentors anyone could hope for and the cohort is beyond supportive. I have always been skeptical of online courses and have found them difficult to commit to. However, I not only committed to TPF but found myself flourishing through the course. After years of fighting resistance and hesitation, TPF gave me the tools and permission to create my own work and believe in my own voice. I cannot recommend TPF enough.
The Workshop has dedicated alumni guides, who will help focus your energy on building your skills. There's no 1:1 time with Seth or Alex (although we encourage you to ask us questions directly!)… even better, there's the dynamic of interacting with others on the same journey, an ongoing discussion among people who are seeking to make change happen by telling stories that resonate.
The best time to begin is right now.
I’ve been blogging weekly for 6 years. When I decided to do TPF, I needed a roadmap and a supportive community. I’m an education cynic. TPF is the best kind of adult education. It was perfect. It’s amazing that the roadmap works for total novices. I learned as much from my fellow podcasters as I did from Seth, Alex and the coaches. If you’re considering the workshop: DO IT.
TPF is for anyone who seeks to improve their communication skills, develop a new creative outlet, share stories, and make change happen. Our graduates include entrepreneurs, freelancers, artists, non-profit teachers, business-people, and writers.
The Workshop serves everyone from freelancers to CEOs, from non-profit fundraisers to political organizers. It's not designed for a specific role or title. It's designed for people who want to show up, raise their hand and speak up. Is that you?
There is no such thing as falling behind in TPF. The course is designed so that you can participate daily, but you don’t have to be there every day. Each weekday, we publish a lesson. But if you prefer to go at your own pace, that’s completely fine too. The TPF forum is open for a full two months after the final day of the course. That’s a total of about 100 days.
While you can’t fall behind, we encourage you to build a streak. Show up regularly, do the work, and the results will follow.
Because the conversations are ongoing, it's easy to go at your own pace. The time you invest in TPF will be repaid by the feedback you give and get from others.
Yes, it does. Hundreds of podcasts in dozens of countries got their start inside of TPF.
And even if you don’t find a worldwide audience, the act of finding your voice will make the journey one to remember.
Enrollment is now open.
Registration closes: March 4th
The first lesson is posted on February 24th.
This workshop costs $435.
