Have you ever wondered what it takes to start a podcast? Are you convinced that the hilarious history conversations you have with your friends would make great edutainment? Do you want to develop alternative formats to deliver your course content to your students? Today’s your lucky day! Or rather, April 3rd, 2022 is your lucky day, because for the first time ever, the historians at Dig: A History Podcast are hosting a workshop for members of the OAH on how to launch a podcast. This workshop will introduce you to the mechanics of launching a podcast, including: conceptualizing your podcast’s goals, tone, and audience; preparing and recording your intro/first episode; editing audio and sound design; hosting software; and finally, marketing your podcast. This is a hands-on event. The women historians of Dig will share their experiences, yes, but more importantly, they will walk you through the process. At the end of the workshop, you too will be a podcaster!
