Plan your podcast

To help plan for a podcast we have created a fillable pdf Podcast Planning sheet that you can save to your own computer and fill out as needed. This sheet will help you keep track of the details of your overall podcast. To help plan the recording of your episodes we encourage you to use the Podcast Episode Planner. These two planning sheets should help you organize your podcast, your episode recordings, and the distribution of them.

Schedule your podcast recording

Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to reserve the room by emailing Martin Gallagher and scheduling time in the studio.
