July meeting & luncheon: Podcasting – the value of creating your own or appearing on someone else’s
WHEN: Wednesday, July 10, 2019, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (CST)
WHERE: Larkspur Bistro and Bar, 904 E. Douglas Ave.


What does it take to start a podcast? Market it? Distribute it? Join us at the next Wichita Professional Communicators luncheon to learn about independent podcasts — the value of creating your own product, or appearing on someone else’s.

Our guests are Beth Golay, the director of marketing and digital content at KMUW 89.1 FM, host of “Marginalia,” creator of “You’re Saying it Wrong,” and NPR StoryLab Workshop team member of the award-winning podcast “My Fellow Kansans”; and Aliyah Funschelle, an aspiring sports broadcaster and creator/host of the multi-platform program Sports with Aliyah.

Our monthly luncheon is from 11:30 to 1 on July 10 at Larkspur Bistro. (Please note: we are meeting during the second week of July instead of the first, due to the Independence Day holiday.) WPC monthly meetings and annual fundraisers support a scholarship fund for Wichita-area students pursuing a career in communications. So come network, eat lunch, get inspired by guest speakers and help a future communication colleague in the process!
