About this workshop

Join the hosts of Puppet Podcast as they discuss their experience with Social Media Marketing, and how they believe artists can grow their audience, reach and careers through digital media.

About the company

The Puppet Podcast is first and foremost, a way to discover the people behind the puppets and how they got their crush for the art of puppetry. How do these professionals define this art? What are their dreams for the future as puppeteers? How is creating and/or manipulating these puppets is helping them move towards their goals?

Every week, Caroline interviews a new puppeteer from around the world and asks the “deep” questions of the Puppet Podcast to dive into the universe of this artist.

With their Patreon Community, the Puppet Podcast also offers monthly workshops for puppet lovers about: puppet building, puppet shows streaming, online promotion and much more.

Since August 2020, they started offering business and marketing coaching to help puppeteers, entertainers and educators promote their services online and gain more visibility. Their coaching students are crushing it!
