Workshop: Grab a cup of coffee and come to talk about making your podcast!


Have you thought of making your own podcast? So did we! And not only that, we set out to make a podcast about data. As you can probably tell, our story (like the stories we tell about data politics) will be complicated, but fun. We’ll tell you all about the challenges of producing a podcast for newcomers like us and our activist partners, how we started the project and what it became, and of course, what we learned along the way. We will talk about the technical aspects as well as the storytelling aspects, which means we will talk a bit about the tools we used, and also about the challenge of telling stories about data and data privacy.

We will also share with you the resources that have helped us along the way and podcasts that have inspired us! We will be happy to hear your stories too! Bring your ideas, your audio dreams, your recommendations and, of course, a cup of your favorite beverage.
