Podcasts have been one of the fastest growing media formats and are now an integral part of the media landscape. Increasingly, podcasts are not only used as a form of entertainment, but also as a medium for serious science communication. As such, producing podcasts might become an essential, yet easily accessible skill in the toolkit of researchers. This course series is intended as a hands-on introduction to the basics of podcasting for academic purposes and beyond.
Topics covered in this three-part practical course are:
  • Characteristics and affordances of podcasts
  • Equipment and software needed for podcasting
  • Recording and editing your own podcast episodes
In preparation, please bring some notes on your personal favorite podcasts and what makes them ‘good,’ as well as preliminary ideas for a podcast episode that you would want to record in the practical section of the course.
