Woodhull Student Podcast Makes Debut

Woodhull School students have created a new podcast

December 8, 2021

Woodhull Intermediate School students have a new voice. Sixth graders have been working on producing a podcast. The first show is now complete and available for viewing. Students are learning as they go.

“A main point of focus this year is to give students a voice and opportunity to discuss things that are important to them,” Woodhull Principal Scott Oshrin said. 

Teacher Rosemarie Rivera has voluntarily been giving up her lunch break to meet with students and organize the podcast. “More than half of the grade participates in the activity,” Mr. Oshrin said. 

The principal called the first show “awesome.” It can be viewed by clicking on this link: https://youtu.be/iPp1dJbyWZc
“I love the creativity,” Mr. Oshrin said. Ms. Rivera is a first year teacher at Woodhull. The principal has invited faculty and staff members to share “any and all” new ideas.

Here’s how the dictionary defines the term podcast: “A digital audio file made available on the Internet for downloading to a computer or mobile device, typically available as a series, new installments of which can be received by subscribers automatically.”

Woodhull’s first podcast features news reporters Emmet Cocoman, Samantha Martinez and Matison Kindelmann; interview/game hosts Michael Grover, Nilson Ramirez and Taylor Ranft; discussion team members Nicolas Eubig, Lia Zivkovic, Karly Maldonado and Jose Chavez; and assistant producers Jayleen Rosales, Valerie Alfaro, Keyri Guidel, Katherine Bautista and Critza Cruz.

Teachers Desire Lahoz and Olivia Roberts provided “special guest responses.” Ms. Rivera coordinated the entire podcast.

The first podcast episode was dedicated to helping viewers “learn all about Woodhull Intermediate School.”
