Workshop: “So You Want to Start a Podcast?”
Tuesday, March 7th, 2017 – 6:30-8:30pm
Are you curious about podcasting? Have you thought about starting one, or being involved in one, but feel unsure about the technology you will need, or the skills required to make it happen? Have you ever wondered if podcasting is a viable medium to integrate into your research, class assignments, public outreach, or departmental projects? This workshop will address all of these questions, with a general introduction to the medium and discussion of strategies and opportunities for integrating podcasting into your work as a scholar. We will also talk through the basic technology needed, and what is available to you as a GC student or faculty member to help make your podcast ideas realistically possible. We will end the workshop with a short collaborative demo, designed to demonstrate the process of bringing a podcast episode into existence, from choosing a topic and planning content, through the process of recording, producing, and publishing an episode. No technical skills or prior experience with podcasting or audio editing is required, only an interest in the medium and a desire to learn more about it!
This workshop will be hosted by Naomi Barrettara.
