What is a podcast?
A podcast is an audio show available whenever you are ready to listen to it.
How can I listen to the Camcycle Podcast?
You can go directly to awesound.com/@camcycle to listen to it. Alternatively, there are many podcast apps available for smartphones which will manage your podcasts and automatically download new episodes, and you may be able to find us on some of these services.
What is the Camcycle podcast about?
It’s about transport cycling! So far we’ve talked about the cycling facilities at Cambridge North railway station, dockless bike share, the history of contraflow cycling in Cambridge, and cycling in the rain. In the future we hope to get guests on to widen the range of voices and topics available.
Why are we making a podcast?
It’s a different way for Camcycle to communicate with people, and potentially broaden our reach. People can listen to a podcast while they are walking, or driving, or cooking, or doing chores, when they may not have time to read an article. People looking for podcasts to listen to may stumble across us who may not otherwise hear about Camcycle.
We shall still continue with the newsletter and website and other activities. Many things are best communicated with diagrams or photos, which we can’t do on the podcast. However we can easily have discussions, or hear from other people involved in cycle campaigning or activities, in their own words.
We’re new to podcasting, so we are still finding out what works. If you listen to it and have feedback and suggestions, we’d love to hear from you.
