Jüdische Geschichte(n) erzählen. Podcasting und die Herausforderungen und Chancen eines digitalen Mediums

This article provides an overview of the development of the podcast medium in the field of historical studies and explores the motives and goals of the podcasters. In addition to the questions of “Who?”, “How?” and “Why?”, it analyses the challenges and opportunities for the communication of (Jewish) history. The focus is on how the medium of podcasting, and with it an audio technology that reinforces the role of voice, has been transformed and changed by the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic and the Jubilee Year 2021, which celebrates 1,700 years of Jewish life in Germany.
