You will learn how to listen to outdoor soundscapes before you record and tips for coping with adverse conditions. After this workshop you will know how to go about recording sounds and voices outdoors that will be high quality, and usable in your audio/video storytelling projects.  This workshop is highly recommended for those who are interested in podcasting.
