STREAM PDX 24-Hour Podcast Challenge
Saturday, December 10, 2016 from 9:00 AM to 10:00 PM (PST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Create, record, edit, produce and premiere a podcast episode... in 24 hours!
So you want to start a podcast? Come to the STREAM PDX 24-Hour Podcast Challenge! Come get your hands dirty creating an episode of a podcast here in just 24 hours, and premiere it at the launch party on Saturday evening!
UPDATE: Friday evening cancelled due to weather. We'll start first thing Saturday morning!
The 24-Hour Podcast Challenge brings together people passionate about telling great stories through audio. Whether you're a seasoned pro or just starting out, the Podcast Challenge is the perfect event for making your dream a reality or just having fun!
How it works
On Friday night, we'll give an overview of the next 24 hours, and share some simple tips you can use to get started on your podcast episode. Rather than introduce everyone around a circle, we'll pair up and record each others' introductions in just 5 minutes, and then listen to everyone's recordings!
Saturday morning begins the challenge. We'll form teams and randomly assign topics you'll use to guide the creation of your podcast episode. The day will be spent recording and editing the episode! You can record on your phones, borrow field recorders, or book time in the STREAM PDX studio! Remember, simply using a better microphone won't help you tell a better story.
By dinner Saturday evening, the showcase begins and the fun continues! You'll finish editing the episode by 5pm, submit it for the evening show, and then relax and enjoy the rest of the night! Starting at 7pm the event is open to the public, and we'll premiere each team's podcast episode! Invite your friends to hear your creation and enjoy food and drinks!
You should come!
The Podcast Challenge is learning by doing! Through the process of creating a podcast episode, you'll learn hands on what it takes to tell a great story and produce great audio in an accelerated timeframe. It's a great opportunity to finally record that first episode you've been telling yourself you'll start eventually!
What to bring
1) Your happy self and your enthusiasm!
2) A smart phone or field recorder if you have one (We'll have some available as well)
3) A laptop with some sort of audio editing software (GarageBand works fine, as does the free Audacity application)
UPDATE: FRIDAY CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER. Saturday schedule has been updated accordingly.
