Podcasts For Journalists

Think you’re too busy to learn more? It’s time you do an inventory to identify when you could be multitasking with these journalism podcasts.

I squeeze in hours of extra learning while I’m:

  • making coffee
  • showering
  • brushing my teeth
  • doing my hair
  • getting dressed
  • driving to work
  • walking anywhere
  • grocery shopping
  • at the gas station
  • exercising
  • doing laundry
  • cooking

When I was a college student, teachers actually made us read textbooks! Now, I try to make learning as convenient as possible for my students. Here are some of my favorite episodes that will help you become a better storyteller while you’re stuck in traffic or at the grocery store.

Podcasts about interviewing

The Turnaround podcast is a great resource for behind-the-scenes trade secrets and tips. Jesse Thorn interviews some of America’s best interviewers about interviewing. Here are a couple episodes that are particularly relevant to new journalists. The Turnaround is available on MaximumFun.org. You can also subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

I am an instructional designer and TV news instructor at the University of South Florida. My passion for innovating learning led me to pursue my PhD in Curriculum and Instruction with a concentration in Instructional Technology. I love creating media to enhance eLearning and foster online engagement. I teach students to create multimedia stories for broadcast, web and social media platforms. I lead the Florida Focus class where students produce daily news shows that air on Tampa's PBS station. My reporting classes collaborated with Tampa's NPR station to produce award-winning stories. I am an Emmy Award-winning journalist. I produced thousands of hours of TV news in some of America's largest media markets at Tampa's NBC station, San Diego's ABC station and the San Diego Union-Tribune. I also produced immersive 360-degree virtual tours at the University of South Florida and reported for Hashtag Our Stories.
