Nearly half of all Americans are listening to podcasts on a regular basis because they provide a flexible way to learn information, or to be entertained while driving, working out, or doing chores around the house. Your library can reach these patrons, and build a deep and meaningful relationship with them, by launching your own show! But does podcasting require a lot of technical knowledge? A professional sound room or recording studio?
In this webinar, Heather Teysko will break down the four things you need to start a podcast: a good idea, a sound file, a place to put that sound file, and a way for patrons to listen to it.
By the end of the webinar, you will have:
– a clear idea of why your library would benefit from having a show,
– an understanding of how to start your new show
– knowledge of the technical requirements.
You will be well on your way to starting your own podcast and connecting with patrons in a new medium.
