Dabble Babble Podcast Gets Talkin’

library podcast will showcase creative energy, projects, and creators from around the Valley

Eau Claire’s L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library is launching a new podcast, Dabble Babble, to showcase local shakers, makers, and creators. Brad Lindstrom, reference coordinator, is seeking artists, photographers, writers, and film/video producers, and DIYers to chat with on this new podcast, which debuts early this fall. In preparation for the podcast, Lindstrom listened to and cataloged more than 100 podcasts in the past year. The podcast will have three rotating hosts: Lindstrom, reference librarian Anna Zook, and teen services librarian Andria Rice. The format will be an hour-long Q&A interview. It will be available on the library’s website and is slated to hit Apple and Spotify as well.
