Podcasts have created a powerful and intimate new form for connecting deeply with diverse audiences. In this two-day intensive workshop, learn to conceive, produce, and distribute compelling podcast episodes from home.
This course is designed for writers and journalists, comedians and critics, scholars and educators, businesses and communications workers, and anyone who wants to understand the essential elements of audio storytelling.
It emphasizes narrative-driven podcasting, focusing on foundational steps in the creative process—thinking as an audio producer, honing a podcast concept, seeking out stories, and gathering and editing tape from wherever you are.
Using classic podcast episodes as a guide, you’ll get a crash course in script writing, recording and interviewing, and editing your podcast like a professional using Hindenburg Journalist (available as a free trial). Finish the course with detailed feedback on your own podcast idea and guidance on how to launch it.
Please bring ideas for a podcast you want to create, and be prepared to describe its audience and goals.
Students are encouraged to use a digital audio recorder if they have one (such as a Tascam DR-40 or Zoom H2n), but a smartphone will do for the purposes of the course.
