CTPR 404 Practicum in Podcast Production debuts at Trojan Vision this fall to introduce students to hands-on video podcast production in the Trojan Vision Studios at the Robert Zemeckis Center for Digital Arts. Over the course of the semester, teams of students practice the essential skills to develop, produce, shoot, record, edit, release and promote video podcast episodes.

Each semester 404 sections feature different podcast formats, such as nonfiction narrative, scripted fiction, interview/conversational or hybrid podcasts. 

For the fall 2021 semester, the format is a moderated exchange between 2 guests who offer contrasting points of view on topics of interest to the university community. Challenging the trend of highly polarized news coverage, this podcast features informed guests whose differing positions cast controversial issues in a more nuanced and multifaceted light. 

CTPR 404 one of the courses offered in the new USC Podcasting Minor, a multidisciplinary program from the School of Cinematic Arts, the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism and the School of Dramatic Arts. 

This class is open to all students from any school or department in the university.  Students are not required to have any podcast production experience. All skills needed to successfully complete this course are taught in class.
