Bainbridge Video Podcasts

320x180 GIF 3When there’s something that is worth seeing in the community, and not just hearing about, BCB will present it as a video podcast.

Some video podcasts tell lively stories about the community, such as the opening of Owen’s Playground. Other videos will illustrate a “how to…” idea, perhaps showing how to make something special at a BARN artisan craft studio.


Many of BCB's adult and student volunteers gathered on Bainbridge Island at the new BCB studios in January 2015 to celebrate the new location near the High School.

Our BCB project spans the generations — seniors, other adults, teenagers. And our current group of more than 12 active adult volunteers is supplemented by the students of Bainbridge High School’s Spartan News.

BCB will continue to seek local volunteers — with or without prior radio or podcast experience — to fill openings for interview hosts, studio techs, audio editors, and social media publishers.
