Podcasting and Your Project

Is podcasting right for your project? To determine that, you need to think about the following questions:

  • Can you communicate your research in a meaningful way to a broad general audience?
  • Who is your ideal audience? Are you interested in their feedback?
  • Are there specific communities you would like to reach? Are you interested in collaborating with those communities?
  • Where does the podcast fit in with your larger knowledge mobilization plans?
  • How will you share your podcast with relevant audiences?
  • Do you have time to commit to a podcast?

It is also worth thinking through the structure and frequency of your podcast. To build audience, podcasts need to be consistent. Consider the schedule you will commit to for podcast releases, and the duration of your intended run.
