The Audio Podcast Fellows Program at Stony Brook Southampton offers a year of advanced, hands-on training to introduce students to the most current information on every aspect of audio podcast production, from storytelling and writing, to audio editing and sound, to marketing, production, and distribution.
During their year, Fellows work on a variety of shows with our production partners, while producing a portfolio including a podcast pilot that is ready to take to market. Admission is selective and limited to 12 Fellows.
Throughout the program, students will take advantage of two Stony Brook classroom and recording locations: The newly renovated David Rakoff Studio on the Southampton campus, and in Manhattan, the Center for Creative Writing and Film at 535 Eight Avenue, near Penn Station. The program will include field trips to conferences, live recordings/shows, and studios around the city. Accepted students will have the opportunity to work in a studio on other podcasts as well as their own.
WSHU Public Radio is a production partner of Stony Brook Southampton. WSHU Public Radio will broadcast podcast excerpts and interview hosts on the air, creating widespread awareness among public radio listeners. The podcasts will also be featured on WSHU’s website and promoted via on-air announcements, social media, and e-newsletters, offering an extraordinary opportunity to reach and build a new York and Connecticut audience.
