Podcast Storytelling

All Levels | Ever wonder how great narrative/reported podcasts are made? This course will introduce you to the essential elements of telling a story in sound. You’ll learn how a narrative is structured for the ears and not the eyes. We will listen closely to assigned podcasts and unpack the elements in class via discussions and close-listening worksheets. This class is the first part of a series. If you’re interested in making podcasts of your own, this will be the foundation.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
