Starting from a journaling technique taught by comic artist and art professor Lynda Barry, we will explore analog, visual, and handmade recording methods and communicating information. How do words and images interact? What do images do that words cannot? What does it mean to make something by hand, and how does that change the message?

This session will be a general overview of creating a podcast and will include examples of academic-focused podcasts.
