Ever wanted to podcast?

Podcasts have enjoyed an explosion of popularity in recent years, and one of Canada's most prolific freelance producers is coming to Penticton to share her tips and tricks of the trade.

On Friday, Feb. 16, CFUZ Peach City Radio will present a talk by much-lauded produced Katie Jensen called "How to trick people into learning: Using humour in podcasting."

Jensen has worked on critically acclaimed shows such as CANADALAND, The Imposter and the Polaris Music Prize Podcast, and has most recently been producing a buzzed-about Canadian ''history with a twist" program called The Secret Life of Canada. 

In her talk, she will discuss how humour can make education more palatable.

"Humour and joy are the key ingredients I look for when scouting for hosts and stories, even when talking about more serious topics," Jensen said.

CFUZ says this talk will be for "anyone who wonders how a successful series gets put together or who dreams of recording their own podcast someday."

The talk is part of the CFUZ Listen Up! speaker series which aims to educate about community radio in the hope of getting people involved. Previous speakers have included Rosemary Thomson of the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra and Janet Rogers, Mohawk radio host and documentarian.

Jensen's talk is free to attend, and will take place Feb. 16 at 7 p.m. in room 107 of the Ashnola Building, Okanagan College Penticton campus.
