DIY Podcast: Amplifying Their Voices
Nashwa created podcasting lessons for high school girls in Austin. On the first day, she taught them basic journalism skills like interviewing and storytelling and on the second day, she taught them about podcasting and how to record and edit their own podcasts. Prompting them with the question, “Who is someone at your school doing something great?” she split the group into teams and had each create 2-3 minute podcasts about students, faculty, or staff. By teaching them these skills and giving them this project, she was able to give girls interested in media some knowledge about the field as well as a platform to use their own voice — literally!
