Local History Leader

The Social Voice Podcast Network hosts the Local History Podcast Initiative--an innovative public-interest media project creating podcast partnerships with local history organizations, programs, and individuals throughout Western Pennsylvania and beyond.


Many communities have museums and historical/heritage societies  abundant with amazing artifacts, wonderful exhibits, and incredible stories that reveal our shared heritage.  But too often these organizations struggle:
  • very little public awareness and few visitors
  • not enough volunteers
  • younger generations not interested in local history
  • lack of financial support
Public interest and support for local historical societies and museums is on the decline, and many organizations will soon shut their doors if they do not do a better job attracting and inspiring the public’s interest in local history—especially our younger generation.
Through TSVP's Local History Podcast Initiative, organizations can educate, entertain, and inspire the public.  Using the technology of podcasting to promote local history via the internet gives these grassroots, community-based organizations new life, purpose, and a world-wide audience.  Podcasts on the TSVP network have been downloaded in 70+ countries and all 50 states.
Through TSVP podcasting, local history organizations can:
  • promote fundraising activities
  • provide advertising/underwriting opportunities for local businesses and supporters
  • feature and celebrate exhibits, artifacts, and programs
  • announce and coordinate events
  • interview community members and historians
  • outreach to younger audiences on all major social media platforms
