What Does It Take to Make A Podcast at The Drag?

Since the release of our chart-topping debut podcast, “The Orange Tree,” a lot of you have asked us, “what does it take to make a podcast at The Drag?”

  • 24 student volunteers
  • 32 hours driving for interviews
  • 40-person team
  • $100 one-year subscription to Adobe Audition per person
  • 120 hours of studio time

This doesn’t even account for the Goldfish crackers and cups of coffee that fueled us along the way. Creating a longform podcast takes a lot of hard work — and money, which is where you come in.

Every dollar you donate to The Drag goes toward making amazing student podcasts. With your help, we can fund our student podcasters and acquire the resources needed to continue creating the content you want to listen to.
