    In this two week intensive program staying on a college campus in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metropolitan area, take workshops and seminars from radio and podcast professionals. Go behind the scenes and into the recording studios at APM’s headquarters.

Each session culminates with a listening party for family and friends of student work at the historic Fitzgerald Theater in downtown St. Paul, MN — home of A Prairie Home Companion.
