Acast has announced the launch of Aclass Essentials, a free online toolkit for creators including advice on how to start and build a successful podcast.

Acast launches Aclass Essentials
Veronika Taylor: “To help the next generation of superstar podcasters get recording we created Aclass Essentials.”

From mic-technique to marketing, this how-to guide contains the essential information for anyone taking the leap into podcasting, or podcasters seeking to up their game, says Acast.

The free resource pulls together expertise from Acast’s experts worldwide, and has been designed to equip anyone who wants to start their own podcast with the knowledge they need to produce great, original audio content from home. It also features “tips and tricks” from famous podcasters from the Acast Creator Network — including Fearne Cotton, The Art of Decluttering, Scroobius Pip, and the team behind The Log Books.

Acast first launched its “Aclass” initiative in 2019, with a series of events empowering new creators to find their voice in podcasting — and this new toolkit underlines its commitment to supporting creators of all sizes, says the company.

Chapters in Aclass Essentials include:

  • Research & Scripting
  • Interviewing
  • Recording
  • Editing
  • Promotion & Growth
  • Monetizing

Veronika Taylor, SVP of Acast’s Creator Network, said: “We honestly believe that anyone can have a great idea for a podcast — but we also appreciate that not everyone knows where to start. To help the next generation of superstar podcasters get recording we created Aclass Essentials, giving them all the information they need to bring their idea to life, and to share their stories with the world. We can’t wait to hear what they come up with.”

Aclass Essentials is free to access at
