In March 2021, AIR beta-launched SoundPath: a new digital training platform for the audio community.
SoundPath offers pre-recorded and real-time video classes in audio-making, skills, craft and ethics for professional reporters, editors, producers, engineers, print reporters, podcasters, and narrative storytellers.
Designed for both working audio professionals and newcomers to the craft, SoundPath classes are taught by industry peers who inspire, share, and establish standards for making great work for public radio and podcasts.
SoundPath builds on AIR’s extensive experience developing training programs, networking, and peer-to-peer mentorship opportunities that today’s audio makers need and value. In 2020, we launched a series of virtual workshops to unite the radio and podcasting community in sharpening their storytelling skills, and for the past three decades, we have run training programs and fellowships in partnership with leading professionals and media organizations. We will continue to leverage learnings from our virtual programming to meet the evolving needs of AIR’s community wherever they are, with accessibility and sustainability at the forefront of our work.
