Podcasting is here to stay. All you need as evidence of that is the success of independent podcasting companies such as Toronto’s Vocal Fry Studios.

Vocal Fry has a busy couple of weeks ahead with several community and educational events on their calendar, and CMG Freelance is proud to be playing a part in some of them. 

Cavern of Secrets

This week the studio is re-launching the podcast Cavern of Secrets. Every day from October 21 to 26, they’re dropping a new episode of this popular podcast.

On October 27, Vocal Fry will be hosting a live taping of Cavern of Secrets. Guests at the live show include Thirst Aid Kit’s Nichole Perkins and Bim Adewunmi, BAFTA-winning screenwriter Kyrell Grant, author Marlowe Granados, writer and author Anne T. Donahue, and New York Times best-selling author Mary H.K. Choi.

Podcast Night School

Vocal Fry is also working with several partners, including CMG Freelance, to teach the art of podcasting this month at Podcast Night School, Canada’s first podcast accelerator and pitch competition.

Starting on October 27, a full class of 20 students will hear from speakers such as Dan Misener and Jenna Misener-Zuschlag of the podcast Grown-ups Read Things They Wrote As Kids, Fatima Zaidi of Quill Marketplace, Jeff Ulster of TPX, and others. It wraps up with a pitch competition at the Hot Docs Podcast Festival on November 6 where students will pitch their podcasts to an expert panel of judges.

“At Vocal Fry Studios, we’re committed to being a part of the podcast creator community and Podcast Night School is part of that effort,” said Vocal Fry Studios’ Vicky Mochama via email last week.

Whether you’re registered for Podcast Night School or not, you’re invited to attend their masterclass on Friday November 1. It will be a night to network and talk podcasting with Pineapple Street Media’s co-founder Jenna Weiss-Berman, Takara Small of The Globe and Mail’s I’ll Go First, and Piya Chattopadhyay of CBC’s Out In The Open.

You can find tickets to that event right here.
