My two-part introductory crash course to podcasting will be offered again on March 26 and 29th. Sign up now! We made the class sessions 30-minutes longer to allow for more hands-on practice and I'm excited to roll out version 2.0 of my handouts.
I was asked to contribute the first in a series of articles to continue a conversation begun in the February 2018 issue of The Public Historian with the roundtable “Responding Rapidly to Our Communities.”
Hardly a day goes by when I don't think about the tragedies that have impacted me as an individual and a filmmaker/librarian...I hope the lessons I've learned and shared will be helpful to others in the field and look forward to the discussion on the blog!
I'm teaching a new class at the Made in NY Media Center by IFP. Here's the course description:
In this intensive two-part workshop, (January 30 and February 1) you'll get a head-to-toes overview for how to get started with a podcast of your own. We’ll cover:
- The different styles of podcasting (including shows you should be listening to!)
- Audio storytelling tips – inspiration for your format and content
- Recommended tools and techniques for both low and “no-budget” DIY podcasting, including audio production equipment (microphones, recorders, apps, etc.) and editing software
- An overview of some of the ways to market, distribute, and monetize your podcast.
The class format will be a combination of information sharing, conversation, hands-on activities, and case studies. Each participant will gain access to a bibliography of recommended books, equipment, resources, and, of course, podcasts for further listening and learning!
Join me for this fun, hands-on class!
