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. NOTE: If a student previously enrolled in ENGL 309 Special Topics - Podcasting, the student cannot take ENGL 308.
