This is a 5 week MINI class: 11/11; 11/18; 11/25; 12/2; 12/9.


Audio is an integral aspect of today’s media. Podcasting in particular is exploding in influence. In addition to radio and podcasting, solid audio is vital to effective video story-telling. Under the audio umbrella there are multiple career paths, all of whom play a part in well-crafted journalism.

This five week mini spotlights the many varied opportunities for J-school students. The aim of the course is to have students interact with practitioners, many of whom would be J-School grads. Professionals share with students the challenges and rewards of their profession. Video and audio examples illustrate best and worst practices. Field trips are a possibility.
