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.

Most of these episode suggestions are from WriteLane, a podcast by Tampa Bay Times reporter Lane DeGregory and editor Maria Carrillo.
