Gather, Learn, Record

The Podcast Garage at KQED is a partnership between KQED and PRX. Open to all, the PRX Podcast Garage at KQED hosts regular workshops on the art and business of audio, networking events, and live events, ranging from listening sessions to podcast tapings. We support audio makers in three main areas:

Community — We are a gathering place and event space for podcasters, radio reporters, oral historians, sound artists, musicians, and more.

Training — Field recording, editing, interviewing, sound design, marketing… the learning curve is steep. We offer hands-on workshops for makers of all levels.

Recording — Production resources are hard to find. We connect audio producers to local organizations that provide production and studio recording resources. Here is a working list of recording studios in the Bay Area recommended by local producers:

Across our work, our priorities are to create accessible and affordable entry points for new makers; represent the voices and stories of everyone in our community; encourage connection and collaboration between creators; and nurture emerging shows with educational resources.
