The Podcast Collective
If you’re interested in making a podcast or learning Adobe Audition, sign up for The Podcast Collective. The Podcast Collective will meet on a weekly basis in Spring 2017. Individuals will learn the skills necessary to make a podcast as well as work collaboratively with fellow podcasters to improve their work. This group gives students or community members the space to meet potential co-hosts, learn as well as teach, and receive constructive feedback. No prior podcasting or radio skills are necessary but a commitment to your individual project is important. For questions contact Ali Oshinskie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
