Podcasts, which can now be easily accessed online, have had a recent surge in popularity, which may be attributed to their convenience. These podcasts discuss a wide range of topics that are related to the professional and academic spheres. The issue that naturally emerges is what exactly makes it qualified to be regarded as a scholarship approach.

To put this another way, what exactly is it about this method that qualifies it to be used as an academic methodology?  The phrase “scholarly podcasting” may mean a variety of different things to a broad variety of different people depending on the context in which it is used. This is due to the fact that the previous knowledge and experiences of the listeners might have a role in determining how they understand it. Some podcasts include conversations between academics; others are an essential part of the method by which a researcher acquires new information; and yet others are mainly geared at disseminating research to a more general audience.

In his 2023 book  ‘Scholarly Podcasting: What, Why, How’, M. Cook, director of the Open Learning Iniative (OLIve)  examines the reasons why academics create podcasts, raises concerns about the impact podcasting has on scholarly knowledge, and guides prospective podcast creators step-by-step through the production process, from concept development through editing and publishing. in short, the book addresses the why, what, and how academics deal with this innovation. In addition, the author explores the nature of academic podcasting as well as its prospective evolution. This is significant when taking into consideration the fact that most recent research is often published in expensive journals and is shrouded in obtuse terminology.

Interviews with 101 podcasting academics, such as professors and lecturers in the field of podcasting, are included in order to explore the implications of transitioning toward a more open and accessible form of academic communication.  Indeed, the research conducted among academics came to the conclusion that there is nothing about podcasting that makes it fundamentally less credible than other modes of scholarly communication, such as teaching students in both in-person and online versions of our classes, writing research papers, attending conferences and other events where we share our findings, and engaging in a variety of other activities.

A segment of the academic community may feel the need to build one-on-one ties with members of the larger community, which may be another factor that has contributed to the emergence of this new trend. This demonstrates how the phenomena of academic podcasting has the potential to completely invert the conventional notion of the demand that a variety of audiences have for content of an intellectual kind. In this regard, it is important to point out that Cook’s book not only offers advice to academics of any discipline, rank, or affiliation who are considering making a podcast or who already make podcasts, but it also presents the technical and conceptual skills necessary to produce high-quality podcasts through a reflexive critique of current practices.

It would seem that academic podcasting has shown, up to this point, that large audiences may be interested in in-depth evaluations of a range of topics and concerns. This is an important illustration of how, in modern times, the traditional way of thinking about the procedures that are used in academic research and communication is being utterly overthrown.
