While some of the ONA18 sessions will be broadcast via a live video feed, the rest require a team of dedicated volunteers to record and bring to the ONA community as audio. This year, the ONA18 Audio Team is really showcasing their talents by launching the ONA on Air podcast.
Led by Erika Aguilar, who initially pitched the podcast, the team will highlight snippets from conference sessions and conduct exclusive interviews with attendees. The feed will be available on Soundcloud, Google Play, Apple Podcasts and Stitcher.
