Welcome to Podcasting: Recording and Publishing Your Podcast!
In this course, we will use the real-world experiences of the award-winning instructor and university music production professor Dr. Jason Allen. But don't be worried - Dr. Allen is best known around campus for keeping things simple, accessible, useful, and fun.
In this class, we are going to take your podcast idea and turn it into reality. We will start by talking about the different kinds of recording we can do: one person in a room, two people in a room, multiple people in multiple rooms, and (my favorite), multiple people in multiple locations. I'll do some recordings to show you how to get the best quality audio even if the other person in your podcast is on the other side of the planet.
After we get the best recording done, we will go through how you can publish your podcast to get the maximum amount of exposure for it. We will get it on all of the major platforms, include Apple Podcasts, Spotify Podcasts, Amazon, and more.
