Producing the Podcast | Fall 2021

Runs Sep 30Dec 9, 2021

Grades 6-8
Thursdays, 4:30-6:00 PM CST at Chicago Children’s Theatre, 100 S Racine

Taking inspiration from existing podcasts and radio plays, each student will create their very own episode from start to finish. We will brainstorm concepts, make choices about genre, design a structure, and write content. Then, participants will learn how to record their pieces on a variety of devices, make edits using Audacity or GarageBand (both will be taught), and add music and sound effects. Finally, we will cover how to share podcast content online. This is the class for burgeoning producers/directors/content creators excited to take on full creative and technical control of a project.

Please note: This class requires students to dedicate time outside of class to work on their projects. Instructions will go out between classes, and our teaching artist will be available to answer any questions that come up. Please have either Audacity (PC and Apple) or GarageBand (Apple) downloaded on your device (both are free). Do not hesitate to reach out with questions or concerns to
