Ever since Sarah Koenig’s investigative breakout podcast hit Serial launched in 2014 and demonstrated the medium’s potential reach and impact, everyone from Rachel Maddow to Joe Rogan has been hopping on the podcast bandwagon. But if you browse lists of top podcasts, you’ll see more than just famous people and award-winning journalists. Podcasting is a democratic medium, open to anyone with an appealing point of view, a warm interviewing style, or an interesting area of expertise. The market is booming; listeners want more podcasts. So how easy is it to make a successful podcast of your own? In this course, we will listen to a variety of example podcasts, from Criminal to Radiolab, study podcast story structure, analyze content formats, review podcast equipment that can work for any budget, and learn where you can host and publish your podcast for maximum exposure and profitability. Students will practice with the latest recording and editing techniques to develop podcasts both from scratch and from existing content and gain an up-to-date understanding of how to make their way in the podcasting industry. Every student will leave the course with their first five-minute podcast "pilot" episode and an outline for an entire podcast series.

No prior experience with podcasting is required. The instructor will use Adobe Audition to edit but will provide support for students to use free downloadable programs such as GarageBand or Audacity.
