Everyone loves to listen to a good story—this is your chance to research and tell one! Think about all of the stories you have heard on radio stations like MPR or KFAI, or online through podcasts like TedTalks. These compelling stories will inform how we will create our podcasts. This course will help you think critically about the stories you consume as well as how information is gathered and reported. You will learn aspects of radio and podcast production including: interviewing skills, story development, script writing, audio recording and editing, sound mixing and final broadcast production. By the end of the class, you will create podcasts that will be played on a local radio station as well as distributed online. This class is ideal for all aspiring journalists and curious people.
