Conrad Fox



RadioAction is an exciting introduction to radio documentary production for journalists, podcasters and anyone interested in telling a story with sound and voice. The course walks participants through the process of developing a story idea, identifying characters and locations, interviewing subjects with empathy and an ear for good audio, script writing and audio editing. There is an emphasis on the elements of a good story, how to extract a story from the flattest of subject matter, and how to transport a listener with ambient sound. Techniques are learnt hands-on, and real life situations simulated through through games and adventure role playing.

The course can be taught in Spanish and English. I am currently adapting it for use online. You can find demo lessons here:

I'm a journalist, producer, instructor and developer. I've reported from a minefield and a dugout canoe, taught radio journalism, robotics, and anthropology in board rooms, lecture halls and mud huts, led award-winning media projects, and mentored dozens of journalists in Canada and Latin America. Today, I write about climate change and develop an app to learn English while you run.

Digital storytelling

(Conrad's) vision, his journalistic nose, and his tireless search to go one more step for the new, helped us find really impactful stories...
