About the Workshop:
Duke MFA EDA student Michael Betts II will provide an overview of podcasting appropriate for anyone interested in starting their own. In collaboration with Student Leadership, this workshop will highlight the power of storytelling for social change and cover these topic areas:

deciding if podcasting is right for you;
thinking through podcasting topics and current types;
getting gear (and the gear you already own without even knowing it);
ensuring good audio quality;
deciding when and how often to release content; and
careers in podcasting
Bring a charged laptop, a smartphone, and some headphones, and you’ll be cooking in no time!

About the Instructor:
Michael Anthony Betts II is currently in Duke’s Master of Fine Arts in Experimental and Documentary Arts program. He is a sound designer with almost 20 years of audio experience. As he says, “I am a child at heart and sound has always allowed me to play. I describe myself as Bruce Wayne’s little brother T’challa—given we both have really cool toys. As a sound guy, I can’t help but be enamored with a material that literally uses vibration to harden. (Vibranium. . . yes I’m a nerd and proud of it!)” In the summer of 2019, Betts TA’d for Peabody Award winner and longtime NPR radio journalist John Biewen for his annual summer audio intensives at the Center for Documentary Studies.
