Podcasting as a Creative Practice and the Spirit of Radio: Local Histories of Maitland

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Addressing the question “how is a podcast created?”–four podcasters document their practice as research, framing their experiences as a research enquiry while making their first podcast. Practitioner Based Enquiry was the methodology and reflective practice was one of the methods underpinning the stages of podcasting production. These accounts of practice, and the reflective deliberations, are critically examined using Gidden’s Structuration and Bourdieu’s Cultural Production theories to reveal how these actions are creatively and collaboratively enabled and constrained by past actions and the podcasting production context. Constrabling describes moments of simultaneous opportunity and restriction that occur as radio traditions meet innovative podcasting practices.
