Create A Podcast

Instructor: Rhonda J. Miller 

Class Description: Sound reaches us through more than our ears. It seeps into our skin and bones and hovers in our psyche. Voices are as individual as fingerprintsvand more powerful. When a friend you haven’t seen in a long time unexpectedly calls you say, “It’s so good to hear your voice.”  Applying the warmth distinctiveness of the human voice allows you to create powerful audio stories and podcast episodes.

This introductory class provides “7 Essential Steps to Launch a Podcast.” The class covers clarifying your podcast theme, writing for broadcast, recording, audio production and distribution.

No prior technical knowledge of audio production is required for this class. You will need a recording device and can even begin with a smartphone or an external recorder. You’ll also need a good headset and will have to subscribe to Adobe Audition audio editing software for the duration of the course.
