Class Description

With the rise of podcasting, it’s easier than ever for new writers and producers to create their own audio stories. Throughout this four-week course, each student will develop an idea for a new narrative podcast. We’ll listen to fiction and documentary audio from around the world and learn how to use sound to make stories come alive.

Students are free to use any recording and editing equipment they're comfortable with--even a smart phone or tablet! However, please note that this class requires some basic recording and editing skills, as we will spend minimal time covering this in class. Students are free to work in fiction or nonfiction, but please note that we will be focusing on narrative-driven work in this course. Everyone will leave with a pilot episode in progress, which we will workshop together in the final class.


Note: Every student must have their own recording gear and editing software for this course. The instructor recommends that students new to audio consider the Zoom H1N, as it is an affordable and easy-to-use recorder, and she'll be teaching editing in Hindenburg Journalist, though students with some experience are free to use whatever recording equipment and editing software that they’d like.
