This workshop is mandatory for anyone applying for a CiTR documentary project (more info to be announced soon) and will be interesting to anyone with a love of podcasts!

More about Cited:

Cited is a documentary radio show about ideas that change the world, sometimes in troubling ways. Each week hosts tell stories about higher education and research; the birth, life and death of academic ideas; and expertise–who has it, what are they doing with it, and what are its limits?

Cited has played nationally on the CBC Radio shows The Doc Project and Podcast Playlist as well as on NPR-affiliate station KUOW and over 100 campus and community radio stations across North America. The podcast has won national radio awards in Canada for three consecutive years.

Workshops are free and open to the public, but space is limited! Email volunteer [@] to reserve a spot!
