The Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism has featured Aklatang Pambata, the children's library set up by Troy Lacsamana, in a podcast. Lacsamana is identified as a "professional librarian" in the podcast, unlike a newspaper article that neglected to even mention that he was a librarian.

The podcast tells the story of how the library was set up, emphasizes the importance of developing the love for reading among children, shares interviews with volunteers and the children, and includes examples of storytelling sessions done by storytellers and even by the kids themselves.

The 14-minute podcast was produced and narrated in Tagalog by Vinia Datinguinoo.
