In an increasingly crowded podcast landscape, it can be challenging to create something that fascinates and surprises an audience.

In this masterclass, we’ll explore the art of audio storytelling – from structuring your show, to conducting captivating interviews, to capturing compelling field tape. We’ll also draw on our own experiences – both successes and failures – to share larger conceptual lessons in audio storytelling. Whether you’re an aspiring podcaster or a seasoned pro, this masterclass will provide you with tools and insights to help you create great audio stories.  

We’ll walk through questions like: ‘What makes a great podcast?’ Or ‘How do I go from a good story to a great podcast series?’ We’ll unpack the tools of good tape, reliable storyboarding practices, as well as the nuts and bolts of audio production and composition. 

1. The Big Picture - What do I need to make a great podcast?

2. What isGood Tape” and how to get it?

We’ll walk through the essential building blocks in making a great show, including compelling field tape, active interview questions and narrative writing. 

3. Audio storytelling Tools

The invaluable tips and tricks that have helped us over the past decade: from how to organize your big ideas and audio files to how to fight your own political bias and how to keep from getting creatively stagnant.
