March 7 podcasting workshop

NOTE: We have decided to POSTPONE Saturday’s workshop. Given the anxiety about Coronavirus, we are concerned about a high absentee rate, which would undermine the time and effort that it takes to put on the workshop. When the fog clears, we will reschedule. We remain dedicated to providing these kinds of training opportunities to journalists in our area. — Miriam Ascarelli, NJ-SPJ president
Learn podcasting from the pros! Participants in this day-long workshop will emerge knowing how to record and edit audio, how to write a script, and how to promote and distribute a podcast. We’ll also cover what equipment to buy based on your budget. Seating is limited to 30.
When: 10 a.m.-3 p.m., Sat., March 7
Where: Retro Report, 633 3rd Ave. at East 41st St., NYC
