Description: This project-based course will lead us through an introduction to the ever-expanding medium of podcasting, specifically radio storytelling. We will unpack and discuss the techniques of practiced podcasters and use those elements in our own attempts at radio reportage: arts & culture shorts, vox pops, sonic ID’s, and short and long-form interviews. We will become proficient in capturing sound, interviewing strangers, writing scripts, pitching ideas for stories, and using GarageBand software to edit and shape that content. Course counts toward the English Creative Writing Major Concentration (ECRW). Registration for odd-numbered sections is restricted to students who have declared the Creative Writing Major Concentration (ECRW); registration for even numbered sections is open to all undergraduate students.
