The Kitchen Sisters Interviewing & Podcasting Workshop comes to KCRW, Nov 12

My favorite ladies of radio take their interviewing and podcasting workshop to Los Angeles. Details below!


Hi All,

The Kitchen Sisters are coming to KCRW to present The Kitchen Sisters Interviewing, Recording & Podcasting Workshop on Tuesday, November 12, 2:00-5:00 pm in the spanking new KCRW Annenberg Performance Studio in Santa Monica. This 3-hour session is designed for those who want to acquire and hone their skills for an array of audio projects — radio, podcasts, online stories, oral histories, family histories, news, documentaries and other multimedia platforms.

In the Workshop, Davia Nelson and Nikki Silva cover interviewing and miking techniques, sound gathering, use of archival audio, field recording techniques, recording equipment, how to make interviewees comfortable, how to frame evocative questions that make for compelling storytelling, how to build a story, how to listen (which is harder than it looks) and how to build a narrative. And we talk podcasting. Serious talk about getting your podcast going and giving it a real sound.

The workshop is customized to fit the projects you are working on. The groups are always lively and good contacts are made. Of course, snacks will be served.

Thanks to KCRW for hosting this workshop for the community.   

Tuesday, November 12, 2:00 – 5:00 pm
Cost: $160.00

Tickets available through our friends at Eventbrite.

Please pass this announcement along to your Southern California community.

Expand your skills, meet new people, see KCRW, See you there.

P.S. Our new podcast just dropped, the latest in our Keepers series — The Kitchen Sisters Present: Lawrence Weschler—Archivist of The Odd, The Marvelous, The Passionate and Slightly Askew

Weschler, author of the new book How Are You, Dr. Sacks? A Biographical Memoir of Oliver Sacks, leads us into the mind of David Wilson and the Museum of Jurassic Technology and into the making of Bill Morrison’s film, Frozen Time, about the discovery of a cache of thousands of reels of old nitrate films buried in the permafrost in Dawson City, the heart of the Gold Rush in the Klondike. Weschler weaves stories of memory palaces, archives of misery, the early history of museums, obsessed collectors and more.
