Audio Reportage

Podcast Logos Collage - Your Podcast Here

Breaking News! If your primary interest is audio, you might want to apply to our new Podcasting and Audio Reportage concentration.

You can also pursue audio via the Literary Reportage concentration, as our students continue to do. Every Literary Reportage student takes Introduction to Audio Reportage course with Audrey Quinn in the first semester. Every spring we offer an Intermediate Audio Reportage class. The goal is for all Literary Reportage graduates to feel equally comfortable writing articles and books, and creating podcasts.


NYU’s Literary Reportage concentration uses Hindenburg, the only editing software designed specifically for journalists. Hindenburg’s mission is to make audio production accessible to as many storytellers as possible, be they professional radio journalists, rural reporters, students or podcasters. Since its tools are specifically designed for narrative, not music production, it has been able to implement bespoke features and facilitate efficient workflows in ways that no other audio software can.

PodForumAt we aggregate the best podcasts, and provide an outlet for work produced by Literary Reportage students.
