Podcasting from Phone to Pro

9:00 PM-11:30 PM / HackNCraftNJ Makerspace, 60 S. Fullerton Ave, Lower Level

Everyone wants to start a podcast. It has never been easier to start one that is on par with something you'd hear from NPR or Nerdist. The tools used to involve high-end studios and expensive post-production software, but now you can get nearly the same abilities, on your phone! 

For this Skillshare I ask you to come with a podcast idea - think of a great one. Because we're going to get hands-on with demos of not only interview segments but other topics like open/closing music bumpers, transitions, segment flow, ads and sponsorship, distribution and more. 

Sure anyone can make a podcast, but how do you make yours stand out? How do you focus on storytelling so it doesn't devolve to 2 or 3 friends sharing inside jokes? 

You'll have a chance to sit-in various podcast producing scenarios, from a studio mic setup to field interviews using a digital recorder to quick voice notes on your smartphone. 

Attendees are encouraged to download the apps Anchor and Bumpers to their smartphone, and even bring their laptops to possibly install freeware like Audacity. 
This event is free!
