The uni­verse of cre­ative pod­cast pro­duc­tion is expand­ing by the minute. In this course stu­dents sur­vey some of the most adven­tur­ous pod­casts in terms of sound design and story craft, and they take a deep dive into mak­ing work of their own. Stu­dents learn basic dig­i­tal audio skills (record­ing, edit­ing, and mul­ti­track mix­ing), develop cre­ative audio sto­ries in a range of forms (doc­u­men­tary, fic­tional, poetic, exper­i­men­tal), and explore how to frame and struc­ture an episodic pod­cast. Stu­dents col­lab­o­rate in small groups to cre­ate a pilot episode, and work­shop their projects with guest pod­cast pro­duc­ers and sound artists. The semester’s work cul­mi­nates in a pub­lic lis­ten­ing event. FRE­QUENCY OF OFFER­ING: This course is offered occa­sion­ally in either the fall or win­ter term.
