Book Review: Your Museum Needs a Podcast

Your Museum Needs A Podcast: A Step-By-Step Guide to Podcasting on a Budget for Museums, History Organizations, and Cultural NonprofitsYour Museum Needs A Podcast: A Step-By-Step Guide to Podcasting on a Budget for Museums, History Organizations, and Cultural Nonprofits by Hannah Hethmon

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Hannah Hethmon’s book Your Museum Needs a Podcast is a must read for any cultural organization or individual thinking about jumping into the world of podcasting.

Hethmon herself is a podcasting veteran but came by her knowledge piecemeal and with a struggle. She aims to bridge the gap between idea and product by helping those with little to no understanding of how to create a podcast. She covers equipment, mapping an episode, recording, editing, and more in her short guide. Hethmon has simplified everything from start to finish and presents it in a practical guide in a way that is not overwhelming.

Make sure you visit her site to grab the workbook which is referenced several times. My only qualm with the guide is that the workbook is not included in an appendix. You’ll definitely want to get it since it’s invaluable in the course of planning and carrying out the tips Hethmon neatly outlines for the reader.
