Event description

Description

Audio-based programming known as podcasting has exploded in recent years as a way of communicating stories.

Learn how you can create podcasts in this introductory course. We’ll review the difference between podcasting and broadcasting, explore different types of content and discuss how to curate an interesting podcast. Basic use of MATV’s podcasting recording set-up will be demonstrated.

In the second class, students will be walked through the process of recording their own 3-minute podcast exercise and editing it with Audacity (free downloadable software.) Additional editing can happen on the student's own time before the next class.

In the third class, students will listen and critique each others podcast exercies. The course will conclude with notes on regulation, distribution and syndication.

Class dates:
Thursday, February 21, 7:00 - 9:00pm
Thursday, February 28, 7:00 - 9:00pm
Thursday, March 14, 7:00 - 9:00pm
