PhDs on Air! Podcast Production Workshop

At the Doctoral Schools keen and excellent fellows work on fascinating projects that are relevant to society at large. More people should know about it! Therefore, we seek to establish a joint podcast with the Vienna Doctoral School of Social Studies (ViDSS).

Do you want to learn how to produce a podcast and design this new format by and for doctoral candidates? We kindly invite you to participate in our podcast production workshop. The workshop is held by podcast expert and artist Jeanne Drach and consists of two parts:


  • Introduction to the podcast market (facts & figures)
  • Development of our DSHCS podcast (Why do we do that? What is the content and what is the image(s) we  want to convey? What is the benefit of all that?)
  • Identification of our target group (Who should listen to our podcast?)
  • Format (Which formats do exist and how do we develop our own format?)
  • CI& sound design (recognition factor; intro, bumper, ourtro, episodes, perfect length – how do we gain and keep the attention of our audience?)


  • Editing (structure; do we need a script and if yes, how should it look like in order to fascinate the audience and motivate people to tune in regularly)
  • Production (recording methods etc.)
  • Post production (cut, mastering)

Target group

  • Everyone who loves to listen, talk, and work conceptually, and who considers „third mission“ as important aspect of academia. Furthermore, everyone who is committed and has time resources to collaborate on producing the podcast of the DSHCS.
