About this Class

Podcasts are one of the fastest growing forms of media on the planet. The barrier to entry is low, so there should be no excuses as to why you don't have one! In this camp, we will challenge ourselves to make a fun and engaging podcast that you could hear on any platform.

We will:

  • Learn what a podcast really is
  • Figure out what your show is going to be
  • Learn some simple and effective interview techniques
  • Get comfortable on a microphone
  • Learn how to edit audio
  • Polish and upload our finished product


  • For students ages 12-16.
  • Skill Level: Beginner
  • Registration closes Monday, July 31.
  • When you register your youth, enter their name in the Youth's Name field and enter the parent/guardian email address for "registrants email." All reminders and important information will go to that email address.
  • Complete and return this minor permission form.
  • You may register your youth for an optional, supervised lunch hour from 12-1 pm for the duration of this class.

He serves as head of development for Steve Zahn & Rick Gomez’s company, Macaroni Art Productions. He has produced and directed feature films, commercials, documentaries, and series - some of which have been shot on mobile. He brings a wealth of technical and creative know-how to the classroom. Courtney’s main goal is to show that anyone can make something amazing with the technology that's in their pocket. When he's not writing, producing, filming, editing, or teaching, he’s typically daydreaming about flying, living on a boat, or trying new recipes.
