What distinguishes your podcast? In this five-day workshop, learn how to create a unique personality and sound identity for your show. 

This course is designed for anyone who is familiar with the basics of audio editing DAW software and microphone technique but wants to increase their skills or develop a new podcast project.

Learn how to get into voice over work and podcasts

Well focus on skills used when developing and leading a show — building a cohesive sound identity and vibe, making advanced edits, using music effectively, imagining alternate story structures, and more.

Over the run of the course, you will develop your ear, practice sound design and scoring techniques, practice audio mixing, and employ advanced interview techniques. By the end, you will have completed a pilot episode of a new podcast.

Learn voice over and how to make a podcast

The class will be taught using the ProTools DAW (available as a free trial with Pro Tools Intro).

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 USB microphone (such as the Blue Snowball) and/or digital audio recorder, if they have one (such as the Zoom H1n), but audio equipment, will also be provided.

Leave the week with a new set of skills to make your podcast land with impact.

NOTE: Students should have taken the Creating a Podcast workshop or have experience with audio editing DAW software and the basics of microphone technique.
