Producing audio content is becoming an essential skill for students looking for careers in media.

Over the last ten years, there’s been a global revolution in audio content with millions of podcasts proliferating the internet. Being able to create high quality, relevant audio content has become an imperative for companies moving into the podcast space.

Now young broadcasters from Catholic schools across Melbourne have taken over the airwaves for a week of news and stories from a younger perspective.

Moved from the original dates in March, Catholic Education Melbourne’s Radio Ed Week features students and teachers in conversation with Live FM’s Ralph Barba discussing the challenges and opportunities of life for students in 2020.

Presented by Making Media, the week was created as a resource to enhance student capabilities in media and audio content production while allowing them air time to share their stories.

The Radio Ed Week will conclude on 6 December, and the full program and links to podcasts are available at
