Podcast Production Services

Podcasting is the new “gold” in digital media. As a medium it’s easily consumable – we are able to multitask while listening, and podcasts are available on a multitude of mobile devices. As with any form of digital storytelling, podcasting is an art form within itself that requires a keen understanding of audio production. That’s why we are now offering podcast production & consulting services.

Media Innovation

The Norwegian Media Innovation Tour & Summit, a custom program, is an international collaboration between the Norwegian Institutt for Jounalistikk and the Berkeley Advanced Media Institute, highlighting  the opportunities and consequences of technology, innovation, and design to media and journalism. Contact us to learn how we can design a custom experience for your company or organization.
