Special Guest Workshop with Mia Lobel: Engagement through Podcasting
Wednesday, March 30th, 6:30-8:30pm
Podcasting has become the go to medium for storytellers and media makers to deliver their messages, in part because of audio’s ability to create an empathetic and emotional response from its listeners. This workshop will explore how new technology and old-fashioned radio have converged in the past few years to bring oral storytelling from the porch to the iPhone. We’ll examine the power and effectiveness of audio to reach new audiences and engage listeners, especially as it compares to print and video. We’ll listen to clips of various podcasts and talk about how they fit into the broader media landscape. And we’ll talk about how podcasts are structured and what works and doesn’t work in an audio-only format. Attendees are encouraged to bring project ideas and questions.
Mia Lobel is a multi-media producer and journalist who has worked with Panoply, Citizen Science, and the International Center for Photography, among many others. Listen to her recent podcast on How Drones are Reshaping the World.
