Social Audio

Tuesday, June 4, 2013: 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Friends Center
1501 Cherry Street
Philadelphia, PA 19102

Philly Net Tuesday on June 4 will be all about the world of social audio.  When and why are audio productions and podcasts a great way to express your cause?  Who are using these tools successfully today and how?  What sort of equipment do you need?  How do you actually produce a compelling audio production?  How do you get it out there to the world?

These and other questions will be explored and demonstrated by a panel of local practitioners, moderated by “Podcast Steve” Lubetkin, and including WHYY’s Peter Crimmins, Madeline Schaefer and Whitney Hoffman.   The evening will be full of practical and fun information about this robust, but often overlooked, area.

Who should attend?

  • Local nonprofits and activists who are interested in creating compelling and effective audio content for the first time, or to enhance their current efforts.
  • Techies who want to learn more about what’s happening in this field, and how it is being employed in the nonprofit and social change world.
  • Anybody who enjoys listening to compelling audio content, and wants to understand more about what goes into it, and how to get the most out of it.

Doors will open at 6:00 PM on Tuesday, June 4 at the Friends Center, 1501 Cherry Street.  (Can’t make it downtown?  Watch the live internet stream at, and submit your questions or comments via Twitter with the hashtag #phlnet2.)

RSVP’s are appreciated for planning purposes, though not required.  Lite fare will be available.  Hope you can join us.

Thanks to the American Friends Service Committee for sponsorship.
