Creating a podcast that speaks to and from their research can help academics broaden their impact and refine their unique scholarly voice. In this workshop Alyssa and Brendane, the PhD candidates behind Zora’s Daughters podcast, will help participants turn their scholarly interests into an idea for a widely accessible podcast.

This 90 minute workshop will cover:

  • How podcasts are useful for boosting your scholarly and public profile
  • Choosing a topic and developing a podcast around it
  • Finding your Why
  • Identifying your audience

RSVP for this workshop via Zoom! If you have any accessibility needs for this event, please email us at
