Podcasts have created a powerful and intimate new form for connecting deeply with diverse audiences. In this hands-on workshop, learn to conceive, produce, and distribute compelling podcast episodes.
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.
Using classic podcast episodes as a guide, you’ll learn to market your ideas, write scripts, develop your voice and approach, and edit your podcast like a professional using Hindenburg Journalist (available as a free trial). Finish the course having recorded and mixed a short audio story, or an audio promo for your own podcast idea.
Please bring ideas for a podcast you want to create, and be prepared to describe its audience and goals.
