Pretty Fine Podcast Examples

Grade 10 English spent some mornings in the library, and here’s what they made:

 

Happy Earth Week

Celebrate with the ultimate renewable resource — a library book!  And if you’d like to literally take care of the earth this week, the garden club is meeting Thursday at lunch and after school to start tending the library courtyard.

What is a podcast, anyway?

Thanks for asking, Trevor.  A podcast is really just a radio show that you can download to your ipod or other device.  Like a radio show, it has a regular host, a mix of music and talking (even if it’s just theme music) and it’s all about one particular topic.

Have a listen to some of these ESPN podcasts to see if you get the idea.  If you’re interested in a movie review, check out the Now Playing podcast.  No matter what your topic, these podcasts will be useful to you.

As you listen, think about what makes the podcast good or bad, and how you might use their techniques in your own podcast. 

When you’re making your own podcast, sample some music from Free Music Archive for your intro.
