Podcast lineup features a broad array of titles
By Jennifer Fehr, FVRL
(FVRL) has you covered with its new ReadRadio podcast. Tune in to hear library staff highlight some of the library’s books, movies, and TV shows that you might not know about.
“ReadRadio, an initiative of our online Reading Room, is a great example of how FVRL delivers new and engaging online services to the community”, says Heather Scoular, Director of Customer Experience. FVRL’s ReadRadio is unique in the world of library podcasts, as we are the first Canadian public library to use the medium as a recommendation platform.”
podcasts are geared towards adults and teens mostly. We will be
reviewing some children's books eventually, however the review
will be geared towards the parent. If the uptake is large enough
we may definitely explore a kid-geared podcast in the future,"
Jennifer Fehr told The Voice Thursday.
FVRL’s diverse staff have a wide range of backgrounds, interests, and expertise, but the one thing they all share is a passion for great stories and ideas. Upcoming episodes will introduce listeners to some hard-boiled detective series, creepy gothic thrillers, fairy-tale flavoured teen romances, spine-tingling science fiction, and more! “Library staff are having a lot of fun producing these podcasts”, says Scoular. “Even our CEO Scott Hargrove couldn’t resist hosting an episode to share his love of science fiction. His review of book turned Netflix series Altered Carbon drops February 9.”
ReadRadio is available on SoundCloud, iTunes, and several other podcast outlets. New episodes are released every other Friday. We hope you’ll tune in and discover something new and amazing to enjoy at your library. Listen now at soundcloud.com/fvrl. For more information visit www.fvrl.ca/readradio.
