Through informative craft lectures, in-class writing exercises, deconstructing successful podcasts and hands-on training you will learn how top tier shows are developed, researched, written, and produced.
In addition, you will explore tools of the trade such as interviewing techniques, use of archival audio, guidance on audio editing, miking and field recording techniques. By the end of the class you will have thoroughly developed an idea for your own podcast and have at least a solid outline of your pilot episode. Pulitzer not included.
