Join PRESSED audio producer, Pilar Nalwimba, as she talks through the launch and growth of the biggest podcast on BBC Sounds.

Starting a podcast can be challenging, but the success of your podcast is based on many factors like your audience, the right equipment and skills to produce quality audio content. Not to mention also having an interesting, engaging podcast topic to start the conversation.

If you are planning to create your own podcast, then join us for this In The Mix session so you can prepare your podcast for success before it even launches.


In The Mix is in collaboration with Black Creators Matter, BBC Studios Talentworks and Barbican Creative Learning.
