New to radio storytelling?

Here are a few of the best resources.

Planet Money’s Robert Smith and KUOW’s Phyllis Fletcher give a great tutorial on telling radio stories over at

WBEZ uses Marantz recording devices, but the iPhone’s voice memo function works just fine for starters. We also use Sony Vegas software for editing audio stories, but any software, like GarageBand or Audacity (which is free) work well.
