FAQ

Q: Where can I find a list of podcasts produced at the University of Melbourne?

A: Right here! Keep in mind it is a work in progress – our records show over 25 podcasts (both wrapped and ongoing) have been produced at the University of Melbourne.

Q: Where can I learn how to create my own podcast?

A: Training courses, provided by Podcast Services Australia, are run sporadically throughout the year. We notify staff when these are running through Staff News, Yammer and the podcast mailing list.

Otherwise, Andi Horvath hosts the occasional workshop or lecture on certain podcasting skills – we post about those via the same channels.

Q: How long does it take to produce a podcast?

A: It takes two weeks to produce a single episode of Eavesdrop on Experts! The length of time will depend on your format, your interview talent, the number of people in your crew, and your proficiency with production. No two are the same – but it’s good to set aside a decent amount of time to polish the final product.

Q: Where can I record audio at UniMelb?

A: At our new purpose-built Studio 757. Email us to make a booking.

Q: Can I borrow equipment from the University?

A:Yes – email us to request one of our portable audio kits. We have a Yeti mic, and Audio Technica USB mic, a Zoom H4n and a Zoom H2n. They are suitable for podcasting from home, in the office, or on the field.

Q: How do I find out about the events that Pod Hub holds?

A: Join our mailing list! Email us to request a subscription. Or, join our Yammer ‘Podcasting’ group to stay up to date (search ‘podcasting’ in Yammer to find us). We hold semi-regular meet ups for like-minded enthusiasts and curious cats.
