Podcasting, Radio Reporting, and Storytelling: A Crash Course in Audio

Do you want to create a podcast or work in radio? This intensive workshop teaches you everything you need to know about the business and gives you the tools you need to get started. Learn how the audio and podcast landscape is rapidly changing and how it’s funded. Through hands-on training, learn how to write for the ear, use a microphone, record audio, and edit on your computer. Work in groups on your own audio project, either a public radio-style story (like you might hear on Morning Edition), a creative piece (like The Kitchen Sisters), or something more commercial sounding. By the end, you will have the audio basics you need to start.

This course may be used to fulfill the requirements of the Certificate in Storytelling: Narrative Tools and Applications.
