2. Audio Production (Part 2) Part 2 focuses on taking a script and transforming it into a sound-rich story. This section is delivered in two parts: sound collection and sound manipulation.

Then, take your new sounds and learn how to process, track (voice) your narration, and cut and edit your story.

3. Scripting, Tracking, and Publishing (Part 3) Once you understand the basics of writing a script for your podcast and how to collect sound, it’s time to take all your ideas, as well as your soundbites, and turn it into a piece! In part 3 of the training, you will have the chance to put your skills to the test and write, voice, and edit audio. This is where you get to watch your ideas come to life and become a podcast.
