In 2016, a Pennsylvania Library Association Leadership Academy group, with the guidance of their mentors, was assigned to develop a podcast program featuring outstanding Pennsylvania librarians. The group of geographically dispersed librarians, representing different types of libraries, worked together to overcome their limited knowledge of podcasting. In the first few months after receiving the assignment, the team developed a method for identifying interviewees, employed freely available technology to record, edit, and host the podcast, and promoted the final podcast product, PaLAunchPod on February 1, 2017. With 6 full episodes (including a two-part episode) completed, the original podcast team entrusted its work to a new group of Leadership Academy program librarians.
