The Wyoming State Library is offering a two-part webinar series on podcasting for museums and libraries. Learn how to bring your programs and collections to a wider audience in these sessions. Register at the links to participate live, or watch the recordings on YouTube afterward.
Intro to Podcasting (Podcasting 101, Part 1)
Tuesday, August 18 (10-11)
What’s a podcast and why should I have one? Learn about how to start your own podcast for your museum or library and find a whole new audience outside your walls for your programs and collections. Cameron Green, technical producer of the Cheyenne Frontier Days Old West Museum’s “Saddle Lore,” will discuss the basic technology needs for starting and web hosting your podcast. Skye Cranney, cohost of the Idaho State Historical Society’s “Behind Gray Walls,” will discuss how to build consistent content. Learn about budget, technology, production, and more in this informative session, the first of a two-part series.
Workshopping Your Podcast Ideas (Podcasting 101, Part 2)
Friday, August 21 (10-11)
Bring your questions and workshop your podcast ideas with Cameron Green, Cheyenne Frontier Days Old West Museum, and Skye Cranney, Historic Idaho State Penitentiary in this this second installment of our two-part podcasting series. This is an audience-driven session meant to help museums and libraries get jump-started with their podcasts. Cameron and Skye will also answer any questions that you may have about podcasting. Podcasting 101 is supported in part by CARES Act funding through the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
Wyoming museums that participate in one or both of these webinars — either live or recorded — will have the opportunity to apply for $250 in support for equipment, software, and services to develop their podcasts. Learn more here.
