About this course:

This course is designed to teach you how to launch a narrative nonfiction or documentary podcast. You learn the art of the elevator pitch: how to establish your voice as a show and demonstrate that tone in your show trailer. You learn to identify your audience and engage them via your podcast on other digital platforms. We also discuss techniques to format and distribute your nonfiction series. The goal is to come away with a trailer and pitch deck that will help you tell—and sell!—your story to networks, advertisers, and listeners.
