After catching on sometime in 2004, podcasts have become amazingly popular including a recent spike of new listeners over the past year. Covering an array of topics from crime to politics to productivity, it seems like there is a podcast for almost everything. The library's relationship with podcasts can take a variety of forms from reader's advisory to creating your own. This course will define and discuss podcasts, the best ways to find them, how podcasts can be implemented into the library, and the basics of creating your own.
