June 17th, 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm (Online)
“Podcasting” can range from pure audio art, to conversation, to journalism, or any sound you care to record and share on the internet. In this introduction to podcasting, we’ll discuss why audio is such a powerful medium for storytelling, learn the basics of recording & conducting interviews, and explore free resources for immersive sound design. In later sessions, we’ll go over tools and techniques for scripting, editing, and adding music & soundscapes.
This workshop is being offered to youth between the ages of 15 to 25 as part of our Youth Tapestry of Place project. Adults over the age of 25 are welcome to join in and learn as well, but we kindly ask that you primarily listen in and allow youth the full opportunity to engage in the workshop.

This workshop is faciliated by Mendel Skulski – a designer, tinkerer, mushroom nerd, and audio producer. They co-host and co-produce Future Ecologies, a podcast that combines narrative storytelling, interviews with knowledge holders, science communication, soundscapes, and music. Future Ecologies focuses on stories that inform convivial relationships with the more-than-human world. It consistently charts in the Top 5 Nature Podcasts in Canada. Mendel is delighted to share their production techniques and workflow with the storytellers of tomorrow.
About Tapestry of Place
This workshop is the first of a series of workshops based around our new project “Tapestry of (staying in) Place”. We are reaching out to young people aged 15-25 who have an interest in creatively exploring how we each came to be here and how our stories weave together. In the project we will collect our own stories, hear stories told by local Indigenous Knowledge Keepers, and learn the art of podcasting so we can put it all together. Along the way we will also be spending time out in nature, learning skills to make things with local materials, and weaving together our physical tapestry of this place as we weave our stories of place into a podcast. We will be gathering the group and building skills over the spring/summer and dive into creating the podcasts in the Autumn.
