Podcasting 101: Recording, Writing and Mixing For a Sense of Place

Reporter Craig LeMoult of WGBH News will discuss how to record sound that will convey the scene, how to write a script that puts the listener in the middle of the action, and how to mix a story that brings it all together in a memorable way.
