Your assignment is to create an audio podcast that is at between 2.5 to 5 minutes long using GarageBand. The final product should have at least 2 minutes of voice recording, a sound loop or imported audio, and at least 2 tracks.

Choose from one of the following ideas to create a project:

1.    Reflection: What is one book, movie, song, event, etc… that has had affected your life. How did it shape you as a person today? What have you learned from it? Was it inspirational? What did you discover about yourself?

2.    Present the news: Find one article online that you will read “radio-style” on your podcast. You must include an intro and outro sound effect for the news piece. You may include, more than one piece of news, ads, or commentaries.

3.    Be a talk-show host: Choose an issue that concerns you and create a podcast with a classmate to discuss the topic in a talk-show format.
