Audio Podcast Fellows: The Schedule
Students will spend the first semester in the classroom at both Southampton and Manhattan locations, where they will receive the most current instruction from leading industry professionals. The students will develop mastery in all phases of podcast production, including in-studio and off-site sound recording, and mixing stories with the latest digital editing technology. Topics will include storytelling and narrative construction, writing for the ear, adapting writing for broadcast, and editing the spoken word, as well as strategies for marketing and distribution.
Audio Podcast Fellows will head into the field, developing ideas for innovative programming, shepherding those ideas through the proposal/pitch process, and finally creating a soup-to-nuts pilot ready for market. During this time students will have a range of internship options, enabling them to collaborate on actual programming with some of the country’s leading artists and cultural institutions. Students may choose to work on existing podcasts from the program’s own “in-house” roster of shows, or with the program’s production partner, WSHU, or with other affiliated podcast producers and distributors, such as WNYC and Midroll.
