Who is behind the Radio Workshop podcast?
The Radio Workshop is a podcast of the Children’s Radio Foundation, a non-profit organization that trains youth across Africa as radio reporters, giving them the tools and skills to make their voices heard. Over the years, we have heard powerful stories emerge from our youth reporters’ communities, and we want to share them with you.
In the same way that the Children’s Radio Foundation is built around training and mentoring, so is the Radio Workshop. We believe that with the tools and skills they need to produce podcasts, journalists can extend the reach and deepen the impact of their reporting, grow loyal and engaged audiences, and spark home-grown businesses. As the number of talented podcasters on the continent increases, so will the quality, creativity, and popularity of available content – furthering the expansion of the podcast movement across Africa.
Working with a team of global experts, we host a range of specialized podcast training workshops and develop and distribute DIY training manuals and toolkits.
