Podcasting Boot Camp

Podcasting Boot Camp In-Person

Podcasts can take academic research out of the ivory tower and into the public. Learn the basics of podcasting at this all-day workshop. 

This intensive day-long boot camp is for academics and researchers who are interested in creating a podcast about their work. We'll discuss how to plan a show, best practices for recording crisp, professional audio, and give participants hands-on experience with editing on Audacity, a free and open source audio editing software. We'll also discuss how to brand your show, go through the basics of hosting and distribution, then discuss how to promote your podcast and build an audience.

Important information: Participants must bring their own headphones. 

*This in-person session is presented by Veronica Litt (Digital Scholarship Coordinator) and Elaine Westenhoefer (Digital Media Specialist).
