This is a chance for teens to learn the art of digital storytelling and become a podcast star! The course delves into all facets of podcast production, including studio skills, crafting a captivating interview and using accessible digital tools to create their own podcasts. Two eight-week courses are available, divided into gender-based groups. The class will begin with podcast background knowledge, history and best practices. In the cutting edge madelife production studio in Boulder, participants will gain hands-on training on sound equipment and editing software. After an intro to storytelling interviewing basics, students will have two classes to record, edit, broadcast and market their podcast. You couldn’t ask for a better opportunity to develop creativity, project management and public speaking skills. The final cut of the podcasts will be showcased at a launch party hosted at madelife. A $50 production and materials fee is payable to the instructor the first day of the class.
