Dear Rhode Island is a community-led project, founded by Club Staff and Member Jessica David, to build connection across Rhode Island using the power of letters. At a time when many of us are physically distanced and we’re missing our usual in-person gatherings, it’s still possible to reach out, engage, and exchange.
The Club's popular bi-monthly podcast training is an introduction to podcasting for anyone looking to launch a show. The new online version includes tips for podcasting out of your home studio. Offered every other third Thursday of the month, Podcasting 101 is free to Members; otherwise $10.
