Hannah Hethmon, H. Hethmon Consulting, USA, Ian Elsner, Museum Archipelago, United States

Podcasts have been a favorite platform for intimately engaging an audience for ten years, but recently they have exploded in growth growth and creativity. Museums can leverage the power of the platform reach their audiences and communicate in creative, intimate, and meaningful ways. This workshop will guide participants through every aspect of in-house podcast production, from choosing a topic to editing to marketing the show. Participants will learn from Ian Elsner, host of the popular podcast Museum Archipelago, and Hannah Hethmon, producer of the award-winning podcast Museums in Strange Places and author of Your Museum Needs a Podcast. Through a combination of mini-lectures and practical training, participants will be empowered to embark on a podcast project at their institution or personally.
