Let’s say you walk onto a college campus with a mind to start your own podcast. Where do you go if you want help?
For a long time at Western Kentucky University, the answer was unclear. Do you pick up a DJ shift with Revolution 91.7? Do you pitch ideas over at student publications? Do you pull out your phone and use the voice memo app to pull something together and hope your family and friends share the heck out of it on Facebook?
Maybe. Any one of those seems a route you could pursue. But doesn’t it make sense that the student organization with the most specialized audio equipment would want to have a hand giving WKU the flourishing podcast community it deserves?
Producing podcasts at Revolution 91.7 was the most straightforward solution to the distinct lack of podcasts at WKU. That’s why we’ve embraced the medium and launched three home-grown podcasts of our very own so far this year.
When I became Station Manager at Revolution 91.7, I saw opportunities abound. I’m thankful to have a supportive and innovative staff full of dedicated idea-engineers who have stepped up in producing these podcasts for WKU, and I know there are more out there.
Through podcasting, we hope to serve the community with entertaining, relevant, and informative content, all while giving fellow students the opportunity to learn about audio production and show structuring.
So as we embark further into the podcast world, join us in our journey. Give the “Nickel ‘n Dime” a listen when you can’t satisfy your football itch. Send “Revolution Solution” a question and hear the hosts discuss it on air. Check out our collaboration with the Herald “Top of the Week” while you’re climbing the hill to Cherry Hall.
And if that’s still not enough for you, why don’t you hop on over to that contact section at the bottom of this page and shoot us an email? I’d be happy to help get you started right away.
