Voices of Bainbridge

New in 2019, Voices of Bainbridge is an opportunity for members of our community to offer up their thoughts and creativity; we can’t wait to see where this takes us!

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.

Interested? We’re always looking for volunteers — with or without prior radio or podcast experience — to fill openings for interview hosts, studio techs, audio editors, and social media publishers.

Contact us to inquire about opportunities for you to play a role in local community podcasting on Bainbridge Island!
