CCCX 116 Podcasting Chicago: Capturing the Sounds of Chicago’s Neighborhoods

The course emphasizes the art of listening with a focus on Chicago’s unique neighborhoods, engaging students by employing them to study, travel to, and listen for the sounds of the city in communities like Chinatown, Little Italy or Pilsen. Students will record the sounds of the neighborhoods (with the help of Radio Department teaching assistants) and then create a series of audio podcast episodes through words and particularly the captured sounds. The goal is to create a series of audio documentaries that are, in essence, a sound mosaic of the city of Chicago that will be featured in a podcast series deliverable online.
