New Way to Listen: PreserveCast Website is Now Live

With over 60 episodes and nearly 40 continuous hours of content, PreserveCast, the weekly podcast powered by Preservation Maryland now has its own home on the web at: preservecast.org.

The site, which was designed by Younts Design Inc., was made possible thanks to a generous grant from the Historic Preservation Education Foundation (HPEF). For thirty years HPEF has been a leading provider of historic preservation knowledge for architectural conservators and architects, tradespeople, building owners, students, and all those who care for and care about historic buildings. With their support, PreserveCast will now reach untold new audiences and listeners. The podcast itself was made possible thanks to a partnership with the Anacostia Trails Heritage Area and a generous grant from the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training, a unit of the National Park Service.

Preservation Maryland made the strategic decision to launch PreserveCast as a component of a broader content-driven communications strategy to fulfill a major tenant of our mission: outreach.  The explosive growth of podcasts and the younger trending audience of listeners made PreserveCast a major opportunity for Preservation Maryland to give voice to historic preservation on a whole new medium.

In its first year, PreserveCast was downloaded over 10,000 times, quickly making it the most-listened to preservation podcast. In early 2018, the Maryland Historical Trust honored the podcast with their prestigious award for Excellence in Media & Publications. Each episode is hosted by Preservation Maryland’s Executive Director, Nicholas Redding, who interviews a professional about their work — with a specific focus on the intersection of preservation and technology.

The new website, which provides quick access to the backlog of previous episodes and prominently features new episodes, also provides a transcript to each episode making the podcast fully accessible.  New episodes are available every Monday via iTunes, GooglePlay and now online at: preservecast.org.
