Community Podcast Lab Program Application
The Community Podcast Lab Program works with participants who have little or no experience in audio production to develop stories about communities and by communities of color. Each participant will complete a 6-10 minute audio story that they will then present at a graduation event and listening forums throughout the city. Many of the stories will also be broadcast nationally.

The program will provide hands-on training and experience in audio storytelling including using audio equipment and digital editing software. All participants will complete 15 weeks of training at the PRX Podcast Garage. During the 15-week program, participants will be paid a weekly stipend.

Participants in this certificate program will learn the fundamental techniques of long-form, narrative audio storytelling. A goal of the course is to learn to tell compelling stories using clear and conversational writing, interviews, and sound. Additionally, participants will learn about marketing, audience engagement, and the landscape of the broader podcast industry.

Classes will be held two evenings a week (Monday and Wednesday from 6:00-8:00PM) and there will be additional production lab hours required to complete all projects. This program is open to applicants 18 years or older. If you are selected for an interview, you will be notified in September. The program will start in early October.
