A buddy of mine who also teaches journalism and is a guy who’s on it when it comes to data and longform popped into my office recently with a great idea for a radio story. Small problem: He’s never produced audio before and the whole concept scares him.
You know who can change that? Anyone. Certainly anyone teaching any form of journalism. And you know who should change it? Yep. All of us. Here’s why audio is one more of the skills every J-grad should have if her degree’s gonna be worth the paper it’s printed on.
