Host Your Very Own Podcast!

At WordPlay we can get you up to speed on everything you need to know to host, produce, and even promote your very own podcast.

We also have our own podcast - 'The WordPlay Podcast' - where each month a guest host jumps in the hot seat and gives you an insight as to whats been going on in the world of WordPlay. Take a listen to our latest edition over to the right.

This month we are lucky enough to have actress, comedian and writer Jo Burke as our guest host. Take a listen to Jo's top tips, some great clips from our podcast clubs, a special interview with poet and BBC broadcaster Ian McMillan and the 'Pick of the Plays' - this month from our workshop at Dog Kennel Hill School.
We also hear from young cookery vlogger Iris, just search Iris Cooks on YouTube to check out her videos.

“I learnt that you don’t have to download any special programmes from computers with sound effects - you can make them all by hand and they sound even better! That was one of my favourite parts” - Nathan, aged 12

Children – Have Your Own Say… On the Microphone!

We offer audio training sessions for children.

Covering the basics of how to turn an idea into a podcast right through to putting the finishing touches to your final episodes - we get you podcasting fast! This course teaches pairs or small groups of children the skills and techniques required to produce and present your own talk radio show.

Throughout this practical course you decide which skills you would like to take away with you. Over the course you will plan your show, conduct an interview, script write, get to know the studio, learn the basics of audio editing pre-recorded content, and you may wish to also brand & promote the show.

The training can take place in our home radio/podcast studio or at your home, and we will spend two hours each session working towards a fantastic podcast episode and will give the children homework to complete by the next session. Price upon application. If you would like to talk to us about podcast training opportunities, send us an email on and we can discuss how to tailor our podcast and radio courses to meet your audio needs.
