NPR launches Student Podcast Challenge podcast

NPR launched a new podcast centered on creating audio in the classroom. The Student Podcast Challenge show is made by the team that runs the NPR contest of the same name. Episodes will focus on technical topics such as recording quality audio and conducting insightful interviews. There will also be guest appearances by past winners and judges.

NPR is one of a handful of publishers that have been exploring how podcast creation can have a role in education. The public media operation has hosted two contests for students, with second one currently ongoing. The New York Times also announced plans for a student podcast contest in 2018.
