Podcasts - the CLC Journalism Society
The CLC Journalism Society have created podcasts for Guild's newsletter, The Slab 2012. In response to some Guild members' requests, they have created six podcasts which can be found below:
The CLC Journalism Society were asked by Emma Adams, Guild Editor, if making podcasts for Guild would be something they would be interested in. The members thought it was an intriguing opportunity and soon had a team of volunteers. They then gathered together, were assigned articles to read, and took photocopies of the magazine home to rehearse reading aloud.
The youngest readers were Violeta Marco and Darcy Beck, in LC1. The rest of the team included: Elizka Watt (UC4), Mimi Prickett, Rebecca MacKay, Niamh Hanrahan and Naomi Morris Omori (SFC1s).
Recording the podcasts was an occasion for the journalists to try something new and they hope that the results will prove useful and engaging to those who use this service.
If this proves popular, we will ask the journalists to record extracts from The Slab 2013 magazine. Please pass any feedback to the Guild Office on firstname.lastname@example.org.
