Summer 2022 Interlude Episode: UNI-CUE Talent Search Students Learn Podcasting WPL Book Drop

    • Arts

​A few weeks ago, the Waterloo Public Library partnered with the University of Northern Iowa Center for Urban Education Talent Search. Around 30 teenage Talent Search students participated in a podcasting workshop at the library. The students learned what podcasting is, and why people do it. The teens then collaborated in small groups to brainstorm, outline, and perform their own short podcast episodes. The workshop was about two hours long from start to finish. There was a lot of laughing and learning! 
Now, in this special interlude episode of the WPL Book Drop, we share the groups' recordings. You will hear five short episodes back-to-back.
