5 WK PODCASTING CLASS IN LOS ANGELES IN JULY
Anna's a reporter and producer for KCRW where she works on Press Play w/ Madeleine Brand & reported for KCRW's podcast There Goes the Neighborhood: Los Angeles which is a fantastic podcast. Before that, she produced Warren Olney's To the Point and Which Way, LA?Also, because of our radio journalism classes, 10 of our students have sold stories to the radio from this class–9 on Unfictional, 1 on All Things Considered. Our most recent student to get on air is Caitlin Biljan with a moving tale about her obsessive search for a high school self-defense tape that contained some strange advice. Listen to it HERE.
In this class, Anna teaches you the ins and outs of how top-tier podcasts are developed, researched, written, and produced. You'll learn interviewing methods, audio editing basics, use of archival audio, miking and field recording techniques. Anna will host a recording session in a pro studio. By the end of the class, you'll have a solid outline of your pilot episode and a recording of your show teaser.
