A good radio story does more than just convey information. In this course, students will find important and surprising stories and produce them in a way that will capture not just listeners' attention, but their imagination. They will learn how to combine precise writing, compelling interviews, sound, scene and narrative to create audio documentaries of broadcast caliber. Operating like a newsroom, the class will examine style, ethical issues and innovative models of presenting and distributing audio storytelling in a digital landscape. Final projects will be published as a podcast series.
