Podcasting and the Classics

Chris Ann Matteo and Ed DeHoratius will be chairing a panel entitled Podcasting and the Classics at this weekend's meeting of the American Philological Association in Philadelphia, PA.

This panel will present four podcasters describing their experience with podcasting, both from the production standpoint and the consumer standpoint of their students. There will also be a respondent. The panel hopes to initiate a discussion, both immediate and long-term, on the advantages and disadvantages of this quickly-burgeoning technology. The session will meet from Saturday morning at 11.15 in Grand Ballroom L.

For those attending APA, there will be a listening lounge in the exhibit area with 10 iPods loaded to the gills with classics-related materials, both those of the presenters and others.

For those unable to attend, the presenters will be posting a podcast (of course!) of the session to the following website:
