Podcasting for Writers at UCLA Extension

Today the UCLA Extension calendar for Summer 2007 was released to the public. Among the offerings is our new class, Podcasting for Writers — a 10-week online course.

If you, or someone you know, would like to join us for this class, here is the complete information.

Rosanne and I are really looking forward to the class.

Podcasting for Writers (Online)
X 430.27 Film & Television 3 units $525Podcasting has given writers direct access to a worldwide audience and freed them from absolute dependency on television networks, radio stations, and publishers to buy and market their work. To the audience, podcasting is “what you want, where you want it, when you want it,” while to the podcast creator and producer, it is the ultimate creative freedom. This course covers the current state of this new medium; the basics of writing for it; and strategies for publicizing your podcast and expanding your readers, viewers, and listeners. Guest speakers available via audio and video podcast interviews, live interactive podcasts, and video conferences introduce you to the variety of ways you can use the medium. The course goal is to develop your own podcast based on individual professional or personal needs, interests, and goals. For technical requirements click here. Enrollment limited to 18 students. Additional technical requirements: Students need a recording device with microphone that is compatible with their computer; built-in microphones on laptops are acceptable. Students must have Apple iTunes software and access to audio recording software, such as Audacity or Apple GarageBand, to perform course exercises. High-speed Internet connection is required.

Incoming Project off the starboard bow!

So, I happened across the possibility of doing some podcast production for a educational institution with which my wife and I have a relationship. They have an upcoming event in June and I have pitched recording this event in audio, and perhaps, video. As of a few minutes ago, it looks like this first big podcast production project is a tentative yes.

I think that following this project as it matures will be a great start for Careers in Podcasting. I’ll be able to share the “real world” in’s and out’s with you as we move through the process.

Stay tuned!

Paid gigs in podcasting? Here’s one from Craigslist…

I have no ideas how much these folks are offering, but only a little searching turned up this hit and many others. I also know one podcaster personally who parlayed his own podcast into a production job for a major entertainment company.

There are careers and money out there to be made.

Video and audio podcast producers

Reply to: job-323926398@craigslist.org

Work will involve filming/recording proceedings, direction, editing and file creation for podcatching distribution. Please provide details of experience, hourly rates and examples of work.

What is “Careers in Podcasting?”

Careers in Podcasting is a spinoff of my existing weekly column, blog and podcast, Career Opportunities. In my role as a computer consultant, I am finding more and more opportunities for helping others develop, record and produce their podcasts. I am also finding that many people want to have a podcast, but they don’t want to deal with the technology necessary to create it.

I think this provides a great opportunity for folks like myself to build entire new careers around facilitating podcasting and allowing anyone, technology-minded or not, to get their message out.
