The creation of non-fiction content for sound media is as old as radio production, but in recent years, the resurgence of non-fiction content in sound media has manifested in podcasts, short sound-only reports found in radio and online. This course examines the utility of podcasting for news reporting and other non-fiction content, for journalistic and promotional communication purposes. It includes an introduction to sound studies, acoustic ecology, and psychoacoustics, followed by units on listening skills and applied production skills (e.g., interviewing, sound design). Students will produce their own podcasts, applying concepts learned in the course.
