Event description: 

Award-winning science broadcaster Richard Hollingham presents this introductory hands-on course on how to podcast - from getting good quality sound and content - to getting your podcast online and heard. 

Podcasting may sound effortless but it requires plenty of effort to produce something that sounds natural, engaging and informative. The aim of this course is to get people understanding audio recording, how to get your science across, and what works best when there are no visuals. Richard explores different styles of podcasting and during the day small groups will work in teams as reporter/ interviewee/ producer to produce their own short audio piece. 

Audio equipment is supplied (but feel free to bring your own recording device if you have one) and, though not an editing course, we will cover the theoretical basics of audio editing and recording. 

The course will make people think about how best to communicate science and help you appreciate what it's like to be on both sides of the microphone. It could even jump start your career as a science podcaster!
