Prevention and Podcasting 101

April 27, 2022

Prairie Center staff  is working with the Franklin Middle School Boys Club Girls Club satellite program to teach students the basics of recording and producing a podcast.

Lessons 1 through 4 will include education and hands on experience  for 40 to 45 minutes of our 60 minute class.  The last 15 to 20 minutes of class, students will discuss topics surrounding sexual violence prevention such as gender roles, how to change negative social norms in a positive way, and dealing with unrealistic expectations and rejection.

In lesson 5, the students will be guests on PCASA’s podcast Prevention Is NOW and will be recorded.  PCASA staff will moderate the discussion.  Students will only identify themselves by their first name and can choose to use a pseudonym if they would prefer.

In lesson 6, the student will have a chance to edit and do post production work on the podcast they recorded the previous week.

The podcast will be published at Anchor.FM/Preventionisnow.
