Podcasts have become one of the most popular forms of audio entertainment. Unlike radio and TV shows, podcasts are an accessible way for aspiring content creators to connect with an audience. Students in this class will acquire and apply the skills needed to write, produce, edit, distribute, market, and even monetize a podcast. During the program, students will work in a hands-on lab writing and producing their own podcast pilot and episodes.
