Have you ever thought about making a podcast? The workshop will highlight critical narrative skills, secrets, and perspectives that can deepen our stories about race, gender, class, disability etc. This will include exposure to the process of choosing topics and characters and voices that address the problematic histories, writing techniques that best set up audio segments, getting beyond the typical conversations with creative approaches to dialogue, and critical frameworks for the big ideas in stories. If there is time, there will also be a brief period for participants to ask questions, discuss their own projects and generate ideas for stories and series. The aim is for the workshop to be interactive and open to people of all levels of experience. This session will be an introduction and technical audio aspects of podcasting will NOT be discussed in this workshop but resources for further learning will be provided.
