Podcasting 101

Thursday, February 8th AND Thursday, February 22nd 7-8:30pm
$50 for current members, $100 for non-members

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.  Taught by BFR Station Manager and podcaster Heather McCormack, this class will review the difference between podcasting and broadcasting, explore different types of content and discuss how to curate an interesting podcast. Basic use of our podcasting recording set-up will be demonstrated. Students will be asked to record a podcast interview before the second class, which will then cover the use of Audacity (free downloadable software) and basic audio editing, including adding copyright-free music. The course will end with notes on regulation, distribution and syndication.
