INST 2570: Introduction to Podcast Production

INST 2570: Introduction to Podcast Production, offered in Fall 2023, gave interested students a chance to learn more about creating podcasts. The course covered all of the basic skills needed to produce podcasts, from concept to streaming product. The course, an incubator to future long-term projects, was project-based and culminated in the production of episodes for the Symposia Podcast. Class time functioned as part-seminar, part-lab, and served as an atelier for aspiring audio storytellers. 

This course was a great option for those who: 

  • Love podcasts and want to understand how they are produced,
  • Are passionate about narrative creation in general and want to explore a digital medium,
  • Have a story to tell and want to develop skills to reach your intended audience,
  • Appreciate communicative work that results in a deliverable product, and/or
  • Are interested in experiencing the process of community media
