One night a few weeks ago I woke up at 3 in the morning with a bolt of energy and started sketching out an idea for a podcast. I haven't been able to get it out of my head since and so I've decided to make it. After three years of talking about "one day..." I've decided that the time is now. I plan to enroll in the Berkeley School of Journalism's Podcast Bootcamp this Fall - a 9-week graduate-level certificate program on developing a podcast series. The course covers all the things(!) including audio storytelling, editing & mixing, script writing, narration, recording equipment & software, launch & promotion.
However, this course is out of reach financially given my modest nonprofit salary. So I'm humbly, and somewhat sheepishly, asking my community to help me to take this first step towards this creative goal of mine. Will you help me finance my first creative endeavor... ever?!
