This hands-on workshop course explores podcasting and creative audio storytelling from a maker’s perspective. By the end of our ten days together, you will have planned, produced, and published a new podcast.

This course focuses on the craft of audio storytelling: story and structure; interviewing techniques; writing for the ear; field recording; sound editing & mixing, audio teamwork; voice; and ethics.

The assignment: tell a story about music and use music to help tell the story. Success in this class requires a strong interest in sound, a genuine curiosity, a degree of DIY resourcefulness, a spirit of creative collaboration, and an openness to the unexpected.
