JOUR12-100: Podcasting and Audio Narratives


Audio is an intimate and fast-growing medium, rich with authenticity, credibility and spontaneity. In this subject, you will learn how to find, plan and report audio stories for radio and podcast audiences. This work will include writing clear, conversational stories; capturing rich sounds, scenes, locations and voices; recording voice and natural sound; editing and mixing; writing and scripting for audio; layering sound effects and atmosphere; publishing in on-demand digital formats; and pitching to media outlets. Through in-class exercises and assessment, you’ll explore a range of creative audio formats including newscasts, news stories, interviews and audio features/documentaries and you will leave with a portfolio of audio narratives. You will also explore radio and audio theory and traditions and how podcasting is changing the media landscape.
