Recording & Editing Podcasts

Small Yellow Light Bulb

Attendees will watch and participate in the creation of a podcast, from planning to editing audio. The demonstration will focus on best practices and simple strategies for capturing quality audio either using the Idea Lab studios or personal equipment (e.g. cell phone).
