The Content Crash Course
A two-day workshop for podcasters

Making compelling audio is a constantly evolving craft. With podcasting, the delivery system is new, but the theory isn't: people listen differently than they watch or read. Great audio is so much more than just a taped Q&A with a guest, or running some music under a monologue. Great audio programming draws the listener in and keeps their attention. It transports, it engages, it inspires.

In the Content Crash Course, two public radio professionals take you step-by-step through the basics of creating riveting content and give specific feedback on your own material. In just two days, learn everything you need to know to retain the DIY-quality of your show -- while also making your program awe-inspiring.

The Audio-Intensive includes:

  • The Production Process: turn a concept into content
  • Writing for the Ear: arguably THE most important thing about good audio
  • Interviewing Basics: practical steps for ensuring a successful interview
  • Sound Basics: getting it, and how to use it once you've got it
  • Format: establish a signature sound that's listener-friendly
  • Handy Editing Tricks: compensate for things that didn't go quite right
  • Listening Session and Q&A: get feedback on your own material

You'll train at the professional studios of KQED Public Radio in San Francisco. Courses are limited to twelve participants per group; each group is balanced to achieve a similar range of skill levels across participants. Intermediate and Advanced courses are also available. The registration fee is $350.

Banish bland audio! Here's your chance to find out everything you need to know to turn your podcast into an outstanding production!
