What does an audio producer actually do? In this helpful workshop for beginners, experienced journalist and Executive producer Golda Arthur will explain what the job of a producer is as well as the organizational, technical and editorial skills that are critical for the role. She’ll review best practices for the job and explain how to excel in the role. While everyone defines the job of producer a little differently the nature of the skill set doesn’t change and this workshop will help you to prepare you to be a stand-out.

About Your Instructor

Golda Arthur

Golda Arthur is an award-winning audio producer who creates innovative podcasts that connect deeply with listeners. Over the course of her 20 year career in journalism, she’s worked on breaking news, produced long-form documentaries, and led teams of creative people on deadline. She has reported, edited and produced audio for the BBC, the CBC, Vox Media, and Marketplace. She teaches audio reporting at Columbia University and lives in New York City.


Golda Arthur is pure gold. As a career journalist, screenwriter and voiceover artist looking to level up my audio and storytelling talents, she made producing come together in a concise and ridiculously empathetic way. And she did it all while wrapping us in this warm blanket of “no bullshit here” — which my BS-free, let’s-get-shit-done self found to be a balm.

Golda was so genuine, prepared, and engaging. She offered a good balance of work stories, personal philosophy, and practical tips. She facilitated a good discussion--was open to questions and making it personal to attendees.
