You may have heard that anyone can have a podcast, and although that is technically true, not everyone should.

What this class provides is the space where smart and creative individuals with great project ideas can learn how to best engage with an audience through this audio format  - in a way that is authentic, effective, entertaining and worthwhile.

Speaking to them completely energized me and I left excited to hear the audio masterpieces they are working on and look forward to what they are planning to create in the near future.

These are the people who should have a podcast.

I had a blast speaking to the podcasting students at Stony Brook. They were engaged and alert. It was such a pleasure speaking in front of them. They asked deep, intelligent questions.

Podcasting and audio in general is having a huge renaissance. One of the things that makes it special is that it's so accessible. Anyone can get in the game if they have some basic skills and knowledge. The new voices and perspectives that this movement is making space for are wildly important.

If we want to help elevated previously unheard voice and perspectives it's critical that those of us lucky enough to have some experience in this area be willing to take the time out to teach the next generation of producers.
