Description

It's the year 2039. Where's your podcast? (A Preserve This Podcast workshop)

Bring your hard drives. Bring your laptops. Bring your Dropbox password. We’re going to preserve your podcast.

If you’ve listened to our podcast or read our zine, you know that podcasts are disappearing. So how can podcasters protect themselves against loss? By attending our first-ever Preserve This Podcast workshop. This interactive workshop will tackle this issue head-on by walking audio creators through the history of podcast technology, the basics of archival preservation, and simple steps you can take to preserve your audio. We will review through the tools and techniques to prevent data loss before it’s too late, as well as “bake” these concepts into podcasters’ existing production workflows.


About our instructors:

Dana Gerber-Margie listens to podcasts while living in Madison, Wisconsin. She earned her Master's in Library & Information Studies at UW-Madison, and has worked as an A/V Archivist for WiLS and the Wisconsin Historical Society. She is the co-founder and co-editor of the Bello Collective, a publication about podcasts and storytelling.

Mary Kidd is an archivist and illustrator. By day, she works for New York Public Library's Special Collections Division. She has worked on audio/visual preservation projects for New York Public Radio, the Magic Shop Recording Studio, and the XFR Collective, a non-profit organization that transfers at-risk media off magnetic tapes to digital format for individuals and groups with limited means. She enjoys creating drawings, zines, gifs, and other artful tidbits to make archiving, and the technology that supports it, accessible, approachable and fun for everyone.

Molly Schwartz produces podcasts and writes about tech. She is the Studio Manager at the Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO). She did a Fulbright grant at the Aalto University Media Lab in Helsinki and worked at the U.S. State Department as a data analyst. She likes diving into the weird ways that humans and machines interact.
