Our Prospect Podcasts brings you stories from interesting people in our community
The podcast initiative reveals insights about business learnings, personal achievements, community service, local history, characters and much more. City of Prospect wanted to create a digital repository of stories about the people of Prospect, to give a voice to the wider community, highlight local expertise and diversity, and spread the word far and wide.
Over the last six months, City of Prospect, the Digital Hub, and Wise Talk have collaborated to capture the unique experiences and oral history of City of Prospect through this new series. The goal was to use simple technology – just an iPad, microphone and inexpensive app from the Apple app store – to show how easy it is for anyone to record their own stories and share them.
To get the project started, we asked experienced journalist Tricia Karp of Wise Talk set about educating the interested members of the community on podcasting, recording, editing audio, interviewing techniques, and podcast hosting. Wise Talk have produced a comprehensive “Our Prospect Podcasts – Training Guide”, which (along with recording equipment and mentoring) is now available through the Digital Hub for community members interested in recording their own podcast.
Tricia has worked closely with local businesses, community groups, and local history groups to record thirty-two podcasts covering the unique and rich history of the region. She interviewed a broad range of people, including business owners, sportspeople, educators, artists, historians, young people, and those dedicated to serving the community in their own unique ways.
City of Prospect invites the community and Our Prospect Podcasts participants to the launch event. The podcasts will be available through iTunes, Google Play, and the City of Prospect website, following the event.
