Poketo is teaming up with Hrishikesh Hirway, the man behind the much-revered podcast Song Exploder, will be leading a workshop on how to get your ideas off the ground and into the air… podcast style. Hrishikesh will be going through all the basics of creating a hit podcast. Everything from equipment, tips, applications, techniques, and even distribution.
On Song Exploder, Hrishikesh talks to musicians who take apart their songs and, piece by piece, tell the stories of how they were made. It’s amazing to hear the backstory and inspiration of a song by artists like My Morning Jacket, RAC, Toro Y Moi, Yacht, The National, Spoon, Postal Service, Tune Yards, and more. Song Exploder is in the rare category of being in the top 100 downloaded podcasts on Itunes! If you haven’t listened heard of Song Exploder yet, we’ve compiled some of our favorite interviews below. Join us on July 11th for this workshop, go to poketo.com/songexploder for more information.
