Podcasts are a great way of sharing information and making connections. As they become more mainstream, even your mom can download episodes – so we think your community is ready for more from you. An increasing number of libraries are dipping their toes into the podcasting, and we have to say: Come on in! The water’s fine! Many libraries do not anticipate the amount of work it takes to create, host, produce, and share a podcast. So they try an episode or two, and then move on to something else that sounded excellent. We get it. This is a lot more work than we anticipated too. But: Don’t give up yet! We want to lure you back! Our experience with creating not one, but two library podcasts has given us some hard-earned knowledge (Find us at “Linking Our Libraries” and “Books and Beverages”). We are going to help you move from having a few stray episodes floating around out there, to creating some truly useful content to share with your community. Join us! Let’s workshop out some strategies, solve some problems, and share some information. (And yeah – we are going to talk about this on our podcast! You won’t want to miss it!)
