Podcasting Classes

Podcasting 101

Podcasting 101 introduces students to the resources, equipment, and workflow needed to launch a podcast. All are welcome, whether you are a curious podcast fan or a podcaster who wants to improve an existing project. The workshop provides an overview of the process of putting together a podcast, from ideation to recording and publishing. You'll also get acquainted with the equipment in the What Cheer Writers Club’s Podcasting Studio and our field kits.

I've been looking for a practical guide to all this information...the class provides an excellent 'launching-off' point from which to experiment and learn more.
