Event Description: 

Podcasting is enjoying a resurgence lately, and it's easy to think that you need formal training or fancy equipment to try it out. You don't. In a discussion moderated by GrubStreet Instructor Ying-Ju Lai, come hear how podcasters Heloiza Barbosa and Felix Poon started out with zero podcast experience and eventually developed their craft into personally meaningful and award-winning works. There will be time for audience questions as well!

Directly following the event, there will be a small Open House tour of GrubStreet's new podcast studio space. Sign-ups will be available at the event for those who are interested.
