Event description
A two-part workshop on how to develop your activist podcast and get the audience you need to start the revolution!

About this Event

This workshop is postponed due to space closures due to the coronavirus response. We will notify all registrants when we have a new date figured out. We are sorry we can't anticipate when that will be. We will also explore offering online workshops shortly. If you would like a refund you can unregister through Eventbrite and get a refund. If you have any issues, please email Sharmeen at tools.change@gmail.com.

If you’ve ever so much as considered the phrase "Should I start a podcast?" - let this two-part workshop be your enthusiastic yes. Podcasting and streaming audio have exploded the last few years, and the medium offers an important opportunity for activists to use the tools of storytelling and sound to advance the struggle.

In this hands-on workshop, participants will pick up tips and tricks for making a well-produced podcast on a limited budget. You’ll learn:

  • How to structure an idea into a work plan
  • How to record “good tape”
  • How to edit it into something beautiful and/or effective, depending your priorities

And importantly:

  • How to get people to listen to it

You’ll leave the workshop with:

  • A roadmap for a real or imagined podcast you’d like to make
  • A finished audio piece
  • A list of resources to build your skills further
  • A fire in your heart

For the workshop, you’ll need:

  • A computer
  • Headphones
  • A recording device or smartphone

*If you don’t have either of these things, let us know and we can source it for you
