An Introduction to Podcasts

11:00 am–12:00 pm
William Eckhardt Research Center, room 401A


Podcasting is a fast-growing medium with more than a quarter of American adults describing themselves as monthly listeners. Join Matt Jaffe, producer of The Axe Files with David Axelrod, and Matthew Hodapp, who recently joined the University to produce such podcasts as Big Brains and Capitalisn’t and develop the UChicago Podcast Network, for an introduction to podcasting—from an overview of the medium to best practices for launching your own show or being a guest. This session will go through the basics of podcast production, what makes a show work, and promoting a podcast in an increasingly crowded field. Those who attend will also get tips on what makes a good podcast guest and how appearing on a podcast differs from a traditional media interview.
