PODCAST/RADIO REPORTING AND STORYTELLING: A CRASH COURSE IN AUDIO
Do you listen to This American Life, Serial, or StartUp? Do you start your day with Morning Edition? Have you always wanted to try audio storytelling and journalism? In this intensive workshop, learn everything you need to get started, whether your goal is to launch your own podcast or begin a career in radio journalism. Begin with an overview of the rapidly changing audio and podcast landscape. Then, through examples and hands-on training, learn how to write for the ear, use a microphone, record audio in the field, edit audio on your laptop, and craft a compelling short piece. Finish the intensive with the start of your own audio project, either a public radio-style news segment (like All Things Considered), an interview (like Fresh Air or WTF with Marc Maron), or a non-narrated creative piece (like The Kitchen Sisters).
