Last Saturday I spent the morning at Queens Students Union. I haven’t been there for years (even though I’m a Life Member). I had been invited to teach a session on Podcast production. It was really a session on producing an audio interview.
We started with an introduction to what podcasting is (and more importantly what it’s not). Then into a couple of hours recording interviews. There was a perfect number of people so everyone got a crack at being Producer, Interviewer and Interviewee.
Finally all too short a session on editing audio.
Everything you need for an introduction to Audio Podcasting in three hours. Ideally a couple of days would be great for this sort of thing. But everyone went away having accomplished enough to take themselves to the next stage.
