Lorenz Wijnschenk is only 11 but his book reviews have been heard around the world.
The Pt England School pupil had two of his recordings posted on the Korero Pt England podcast on iTunes.
He is also one of a small group of students to host "how to" presentations when visitors come to the school see the podcasting in action.
"It's really cool," said Lorenz.
His mother, Marisa Wijnschenk, said her youngest child used to be shy standing up in front of a group.
"In a crowd, he can't put himself forward in front of his other mates," she said.
But all that changed when it came to podcasting.
"You can't shut him up," she joked.
Because Pt England School is in a low socio-economic area, it has two iPods to loan to families who don't have music players or home computers with internet access.
"It's like a library," said eLearning team leader Dorothy Burt. "We've never had a problem with them coming back."
However, the Wijnschenks download Lorenz's work on to their home computer and gather around to listen.
Lorenz, whose father Charlie is from Holland, said his aunts, uncles and cousins on the other side of the globe keep an eye on his progress.
"They tell us that it's really awesome," he said. "And they think I'm really good."
