What is a podcast?

A podcast, very simply, is a digital audio or video file that is available on the Internet for dowloading to devices. Typically these files (podcasts) are available as a series where new installments can be received by subscribers automatically. Podcasts can inform audiences, discuss important topics and share narratives. With podcast apps pre-installed on new Apple and Android devices, they are listened to by half of all households in the United States*.

CIT&DL's Podcasting Studio is located in rooms RT 810 and 811.  The studio can produce several different kinds of audio and video media but is optimized to produce podcasts.

How can the studio be used?

There are a number of different content and broadcast options available through the studio. For podcasts, we encourage:

  • Faculty and staff producing a traditional, episode-based podcast that relates to their subject matter expertise, courses or work at Cleveland State.
  • Hosting a live, Internet-based show on YouTube, Facebook Live or Twitch.
  • Faculty and staff creating episode-based course content.
  • Faculty partnering with our Center's staff to incorporate podcasting as an assignment for their students.
  • Creating short messages and advertisements to be directed at a specific audience.
