What you'll learn in this media training:

We have a new infatuation with audio podcasts and rightly so. Streaming audio has become easier to access, is readily available on mobile devices, and is now more personalized than ever before. This presents a huge opportunity for publishers, marketers, journalists, and communication professionals to connect with audiences via this “new” medium.


In this two-day certificate course, Podcasting: Telling Stories in Sound, you’ll learn the art of creating and producing distinctive audio podcasts. You’ll practice hands-on recording and editing to develop your own podcast with direction from professional radio producers and podcasters.


You will learn:

  • To write scripts for audio, with a focus on podcasting.
  • Presentation and announcing skills that engage your audience.
  • Planning and work flow techniques.
  • To add music and interviews to your audio productions.
  • Tips on how to interview including preparing for the interview.
  • How to choose the right equipment for your podcasts.
  • To edit your podcast like a professional using Adobe Audition.
