Podcasts: A New Way to Mobilize Your Knowledge
May 18, 2022
3:00PM to 5:00PM
Podcasts can take academic research out of the ivory tower and into the public. Learn the basics of podcasting at this workshop from podcaster and SCDS Coordinator Veronica Litt and Digital Media Specialist Elaine Westenhoefer.
This intensive workshop will guide attendees through the podcasting process. We’ll discuss how to plan a show, best practices for recording crisp, professional audio, and give participants hands-on experience with editing on Audacity, a free and open source audio editing software. We’ll also discuss how to brand your show, go through the basics of hosting and distribution, then discuss how to promote your podcast and build an audience.
This workshop takes place at Lyons New Media Centre. Participants will use the computers at Lyons, but please bring a pair of headphones. Attendees can sign up as individuals or in pairs, if you are interested in creating a show with a colleague. Pairs will share a computer.
