Podcasting Workshop

September 1, 2017 | Jonathan B. Singer

Award-winning podcaster Jonathan Singer led the first of the Fall 2017 CTSDH workshops, "Podcasting: Why, How and You," on Friday, September 1st in the CTSDH. Podcasting has been around since 2004 but entered a golden age with the Serial Podcast. Millions of people are podcasting and advertisers are pouring millions of dollars into them. So why would an academic want to podcast when you could write a book, a chapter, an article, or just have coffee with your colleague? Is it really as easy as everyone says it is to create a podcast? If so, why am I not doing it already? Jonathan B. Singer, Ph.D., LCSW, associate professor of social work and founder and host of the award-winning Social Work Podcast answered these questions and more. Jonathan's slides are available here and notes from CTSDH Digital Fellow, Rebecca Parker, are available here.
