Let's make a radio!

When TV was invented, everybody thought that radio was going to disappear. However this was not true and with Internet there was no longer a problem with the airwaves limits. Some people even see this moment as an opportunity because the podcasts are easier to adapt to times and devices of a more complex audience. The simple idea of creating a radio station and its contents is very attractive. Also, it is much more easy and affordable than you may think. 

Free workshop after signing up on this form. Number of vacancies: 20. For any additional information, please write to: periodismociudadano[arroba]medialab-prado.es.
