In this course, students will work with a historian and podcast producer team - collaborators on the acclaimed podcast “Welcome To Your Fantasy” - to understand the nature of historical narrative and the power of “microhistory;” study the history of audio storytelling in the United States and the significance of the contemporary podcast boom; learn how historians and producers identify a story topic; acquire a deeper understanding of the editorial and technical skills required for podcast production; engage with podcasting historians and podcast producers to understand the nature of this work and the field at large. Ultimately, students will conceptualize, report, mix, and edit their own 3-5 minute history-focused audio story on a topic selected in consultation with the course instructors.
