"Our students found the class engaging and incredibly helpful. Karla was full of practical advice and professional insight which encouraged the students to take their work to the next level. A few have decided to become regular podcasters and found the workshop invaluable. I would highly recommend Karla’s workshop for anyone thinking about making podcasts or anyone looking to improve their practice."

"Karla provided us with the 'critical ear' we needed at a crucial point on the development of our podcast series. She also provoked really useful team conversations and helped us find new ways of arranging content."
