We are living in a golden age for audio journalism. Radio has long been a medium that lends itself to communicating the news in an immediate and intimate way. Now, podcasting is allowing new voices to be shared widely. We can tell stories not just about the world around us but also share our own narratives and perspectives on anything and everything. This course will provide you with the tools to tell audio stories, while learning practical skills that will help build your career.

Notes: Counts as an elective for the journalism major and both journalism minors.
