Student Podcast ‘Kleb180’ Reaches 150th Episode Milestone

Student Podcast ‘Kleb180’ Reaches 150th Episode Milestone

What started out as a simple podcast idea took a 180-degree turn and reached the 150th episode milestone!

Kleb Digital Design and Media Production teacher Brian Williams had many goals entering Kleb, but one was something he could not pass up. He longed to start a weekly news podcast created by students to share with their school community.

“We started the pilot episode of Kleb180 during my first year of teaching,” said Mr. Williams. “I couldn’t believe that the students were on board with this idea and I am so glad that students who have contributed throughout the years were so pivotal in making this idea come to life.”

Through this initiative, building students’ speech skills and confidence was important. Mr. Williams wanted to introduce his students to a facet of journalism that would allow them to learn about a potential career while having fun in the process. To others, this was a stepping stone to finding their passion outside of journalism.

“I am so glad to see my students, who are now seniors, finding their true purpose in wanting to teach or wanting to go out into the workforce,” said Mr. Williams. “They are using the skill sets that they learned in this podcast.”

Kleb180 has accumulated over 11 hours of content since the start of the podcast and they are truly excited to continue innovating ways to make the show better.

“Throughout the school year, I always give my students advice to help them grow. In addition to telling them to ‘keep learning new things’ and ‘expand your horizons.’ I also tell them this before they move on after Kleb: ‘Be radiating, because those you guide to the right trail will thrive on your light and warmth!’

Congratulations to Kleb 180 for their accomplishments!
