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. Zines will be provided.

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 (@theaudiosignal) 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 (@kiddarchivist) is an archivist and illustrator. By day, she works for New York Public Library's Preservation and Collections Processing Department. She has worked on audio/visual preservation projects for New York Public Radio, 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 creates drawings, zines, gifs, and other artful tidbits to make preservation and archiving, and the technology that supports it, accessible, approachable for all.

Sarah Nguyen (@snewyuen) is the Assistant Producer and Project Coordinator of Preserve This Podcast. She is an advocate for open, accessible, and secure technologies through a few gigs during studies as a Master’s of Library and Information Science candidate at the University of Washington iSchool: Instructional Design Technologist at CUNY City Tech Open Education Resources Program and as a Git Research Assistant for NYU Libraries. Offline, she can be found riding a Cannondale mtb or practicing movement through dance.
