Workshop Title:
“So you want to be a podcaster: Quick starts, best practices, and best (cheap) gear to get your hands on!"

Workshop Description:
I will be teaching the quick and dirty ways to get setup to create any type of podcast you might be interested in starting. We will go through- deciding if podcasting is for you, thinking through topics (the types of podcasts out there), getting gear (or gear you already own without even knowing it), getting good audio (who wants to listen to crummy audio for 30 minutes?), editing it, deciding when and how often to release content and last but not least, could I make this a career (people do it)?!

Equipment needed:
Bring a charged laptop, a smartphone, and some headphones and we'll be cooking in no time!

About the instructor:
Michael Betts II is a Duke MFA Graduate Student. He has been a sound designer and podcast creator for 12 years.
