This online panel presentation used the recent volume, Podcasting: New Aural Cultures and Digital Media (ed. Dario Llinares, Neil Fox, Richard Berry) as an opportunity to think and engage in discussion about the emergence of podcasting as a field of critical study. Led by SpokenWeb podcast series director Hannah McGregor, the session opened with a presentation by one of the editors of the scholarly collection on Podcasting, Dario Llinares, in which he presented some of the main theses about podcasting presented in the book, and reflected on how the landscape of research around podcasting is rapidly developing. Brief position papers were then presented from respondents Stacey Copeland (SFU), Elena Razlogova (Concordia U), Kim Fox (American University in Cairo), Michael O’Driscoll (U Alberta) and Deanna Fong (Concordia U), which shared perspectives on podcasting as a field of scholarly research and practice. The discussion then opened up to questions and participation from attendees.
