Broadcasting on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and Anchor is The Bonneville Buzzcast. This podcast is operated by the newspaper team at Bonneville High School to speak on the school and events going on in the South-Eastern Idaho region. The podcast started in the later part of May 2022, and took a summer break along with the students of BHS.
When The Buzzcast first premiered, the members of the newspaper recorded an interview with the School Resource Officer, Dan Sperry. The episode featured many of the adventures he had experienced, his journey of becoming an officer, and his experiences with the places he has been. Only this episode has been published thus far, as the team had a setback: loss of a few staff members, summer break, and more.
A significant problem the staff ran into was quite a few issues with recording, especially the difficulties of the WiFi shutting them out. Sadly, this took away a bit of time and forced ideas to be shelved for another few months; one of those ideas was about some of Idaho Falls' own supernatural sightings and experiences. Back in October 2022, the staff planned to highlight supernatural experiences and thoughts on the supernatural from the students at Bonneville High School. A form was sent out to the students of Bonneville High School, getting a total of 98 responses from peers and faculty. However, the staff had technology issues during this time, causing it to be pushed back for next school year and another idea took place: an interview with Mrs. Killian!
Killian teaches Practical English, Math, and Social Studies in room 201, helping those with learning deficiencies succeed in high school. In the episode, there was talk about supporting them and spreading awareness, as well as the proper terms to use and her own personal experiences teaching teenagers. One of the main things that stuck out in this interview was “Students before Disabilities,” Killian’s own personal motto. While all students have a differing learning style, they should not be defined by their disability, and instead choose to define them as a student of BHS.
While the newspaper team has had a few setbacks with recording issues, IT issues, and more—the new episode is to be posted on February 7th 2023! Catch it on most podcasting websites and apps!
