Podcasting from the library is a growing movement. This book teaches librarians and educators how to set up, develop, market, and deliver a successful youth-led podcast from their library. Putting youth in control when interviewing authors and other guests develops their leadership and technical skills and brings new users to the library to engage in a unique library activity. This inexpensive program teaches readers how to use the technology required to deliver a podcast. Sound recording equipment, microphones, mixers, and audio files may be intimidating but this book quells those fears by explaining the technology in a straightforward, how-to manner. It also includes student input on what podcasters have learned, the challenges they have faced, and their plans for the future. The book offers many helpful tips to librarians who want to learn how to create a program that puts students in charge and allows them to produce a tangible product that their peers will be interested in.
