Picture of a poster advertising the Columbia Libraries Podcast club

Columbia University Libraries’ Podcast Club offers students an opportunity to explore audio as a new way to tell stories and share research. Over the course of an eight-week project, teams of students have the opportunity to explore unique items from the Libraries’ archives and Rare Books and Manuscript collections selected and shared by Columbia librarians and curators. Students interview librarians, conduct research, write scripts, record and edit audio, and publish their content accessibly. 

Podcast club takes place over eight weeks followed by a Launch Party celebrating the students’ work. This booklet contains the lesson plans I have used for two semesters to teach Podcast Club, along with many of the supporting documents, worksheets, and links to online works that I use to support my teaching.
