Your podcast should be between 5 and 15 minutes in length. You should have the following elements:

(1) Music to introduce your program–preferably music connected with the 1920s.

(2) A brief introduction of the series, the program theme, and the names of the hosts.

(3) One or more segments explaining the main topic of the program. You can add music to break up the segments if you wish.

(4) A closing that repeats the title, the names of the hosts, and the names of all the members who worked on the program.

There are two locations for recording a podcast. Keys to these rooms are available from 9 AM to 5 PM from the Gakuji Center on the first floor of building 14.

After the series of the programs is completed, they will be uploaded to the department’s student Internet radio station Eibei Radio <>
