  2. Record a 3 – 5 minute conversation (with yourself) telling us who you are, where you’re from and what appeals to you about podcasting. More importantly, tell us about a few subjects you find interesting and how one or two of these interests could blossom into an exciting, rich and compelling podcast episode. Be sure to engage us as listeners and have fun!

Please email your file to Pedro Falci at Include your area of study and graduating class in the email.
