Introduction to Podcasting and Radio Reporting

Do you want to create a podcast or work in radio? This beginner’s workshop teaches you everything you need to get started. You’ll learn the fundamentals of audio recording and editing. We cover the industry’s history and how it makes money. And the course teaches you how to write and interview for the ear. Then, you’ll put all the skills together by producing your own radio story (like you might hear on NPR) or a mini podcast in the style of your choosing.
Registering at least three weeks prior to the course start date is highly recommended.
