Warwick Public Library is starting Warwick Radio Online, a podcast for the City of Warwick with news and stories about the city’s people, businesses, and one-of-a-kind culture—and we’re looking for people to help run the podcast, make episodes, and help others create episodes, too.
You don’t need to know how to make shows. We can teach you. All you need is a desire to connect with others and have fun.
The Warwick Public Library studio includes microphones for up to four speakers, a 12-channel mixer, and an iMac to record and edit sound. The studio is also equipped with a mobile recorder to enable recording outside of the studio.
Write to email@example.com to let us know you’re interested and to find out more.
Warwick Radio Online is made possible in part by a grant from the Rhode Island Office of Library & Information Services using funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
In April 2021, Barrington Public Library and Warwick Public Library received a $17,588 grant to build a recording studio at each library and record podcasts.
