Sound Science audio workshop, Jan 22, 10am-1pm, NYC

Hey FC NYC folks. I'm teaching a 3-hour audio workshop at the CUNY jschool in Jan and would love to see some friendly faces there. Here's the info:

Tuesday, Jan. 22, 10 a.m.-1 p.m.

Sound Science – Mia Lobel – Room 434 (25 students max)

In this hands-on audio workshop, you’ll learn to take a complex scientific idea or story, break it down into character, plot, and setting, and develop it into an engaging narrative for a wide audience. We’ll discuss how to find and talk to scientists, how to get scientists to talk to you in a language everyone can understand, and how to make science sing. Plus, you’ll learn how to fact-check science stories for accuracy and balance. Students will workshop and pitch their ideas in class. The “winning” pitch may be produced for Distillations, the chemistry podcast. The class will be taught by freelance producer Mia Lobel, who is an adjunct instructor at the CUNY J-School and senior producer of Distillations.

The course cost $30 (payable to CUNY, not me). If you're interested, email Amy Dunkin <> and she can tell you how to register.
Lemme know if you have any questions, and hope to see you there! Feel free to pass this along to anyone you think may be interested.
Best, Mia
