Description of workshop 

This workshop aims to complement others on social media as a source, subject and method (ie workshops on Tik Tock and electronic archives) to provide a space to consider hands-on experiences in making business history available to a wider audience and, therefore, further discuss the ways historians can undertake to effective engagement with an ever more popular channel in social media.

The session will be driven by the audience's questions. It kick-off with a short overview by panelists of different approaches to using podcasts while helping business history to interact with a wider audience. These approaches or dialogues will include 5 min capsules on: plain vanilla interviews (Arteaga), archive-led interviews (Hargreaves), research-led interviews (Hoffmann), and podcasts as a research tool and for teaching (Batiz-Lazo).

There are, of course, other more practical issues such as where do I start, what software to use, platforms, costs, editing, training, and other practical considerations, which the panelist will be happy to explore based on the interests of the audience.
