In 2019 there were more than 700,000 active podcasts with over 54 million podcast episodes available worldwide. This is a CROWDED field. Unless you are a celebrity or have a niche audience, it is very difficult to get noticed (and listened to). This is especially true for those who create podcasts using the usual (and to listeners, not particularly interesting) older formats of one person talking about a subject or one person interviewing another about a subject. The new wave of podcasts are structured as reported magazine-style stories or dramatic narratives. These are mini-audio documentaries. They tell stories. This two-day hands-on workshop will look at this new generation of podcasts and focus on developing a concept, a storyboard and the outlines of a script for your podcast.

Her books have been Wall Street Journal and People magazine „best“ selections, Washington Post and Los Angles Times bestsellers. She has written for the New York Times magazine, Los Angeles Times magazine, O (Oprah) magazine and The Nation among others.
