Floor 1, Workshop IV

March 10 & March 14

A Peabody Award-winning audio producer, reporter and the founder of Radio Diaries, Joe Richman will conduct a workshop focusing on how to choose and tell stories through podcasts. The two-day program will explore the construction of narratives and stories through writing, interviewing, creating scenes, and production.

Organized in collaboration with Forecast—an international mentorship program and interdisciplinary network for knowledge transfer—the workshop will be held in English and is limited to 12 participants. To apply, a brief text on the interest or the previous experience in audio storytelling along with two potential ideas for an audio story should be sent to until March 6. Participants are expected to share their podcasts produced as part of the workshop communally.

Joe Richman currently teaches journalism and audio documentary at Columbia University and Princeton University. His Radio Diaries, a non-profit organization based in New York, has helped pioneer a new form of citizen journalism. Richman’s award-winning productions include: Teenage Diaries, Prison Diaries, My So-Called Lungs, New York Works, Thembi’s AIDS Diary, Mandela: An Audio History, Willie McGee and the Traveling Electric Chair, and Teen Contender. Richman has participated in the fourth edition of Forecast as the mentor of science journalist and and multidisciplinary artist Caty Enders.

Enders’ eight-episode podcast, which she developed working with Richman, The Forever Show will be presented as a one-day sound installation, transforming narrative storytelling into a physical space at SALT Galata on March 13. She will give a lecture performance (in English) on her podcast at 19.00, followed by a Q&A session.
