Join the Masterclass!

Interested in podcasting? Tell us your plan for a podcast and how you’d benefit from a workshop with podcast producer and host of Queer Public, Erin McGregor at the Calgary Institute for the Humanities at the University of Calgary, Fri. Nov. 29. from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. You don’t need to have started or completed a project in time for this workshop, but we are interested in folks who have a carefully laid plan for an episode or series. We’re also especially interested in questions that involve the environmental+humanities, but we’re open to all subjects.

Send your short proposal (200 or so words) to mhogan@ucalgary.ca by November 6th. We’ll send you an invitation the following Monday if we can help you out. Spots are limited, so we’ll select just 10 participants.

Please email mhogan@ucalgary.ca if you have questions. Thank you!

Please note that all are invited to Erin’s public talk at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 28 in Gallery Hall, Taylor Family Digital Library (Register: podcastanatomy.eventbrite.ca).

What You’ll Learn: Produce Your Podcast
Podcasts redefine what it means to broadcast, and build a following, and how we listen to and produce audio content. In this Podcast Masterclass, facilitator Erin McGregor draws from her experience producing in the field. Learn from Erin’s freelance career in audio production, and her knowledge of the podcast industry, how to develop stories that make you lean in. Using elements of journalism, narrative storytelling, interviews, and conversations, learn the skills to put you behind the microphone.

Erin McGregor is a Philadelphia based podcast producer. She is the host and creator of Queer Public, a podcast that asks critical questions about queer identity, politics and culture. She is also a feature interview producer on a long running queer indie music podcast Homoground. Erin holds a Master’s Degree in Social Justice & Equity Studies from Brock University where she studied broadcast news interviews on CBC’s The Hour (which later became George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight). Her current season of Queer Public seeks to elevate the voices of independent queer artists in Philadelphia and meets artists in real-life queer life.
