The Millennial Disruptive Medium Is… Podcasting

Anchor Podcast Set Up

When I was in college I was a Broadcast Journalism News major prior to switching to Political Science. One of my professors always said that the way in which people obtain access to the news will always evolve. My professor also argued that a true journalist must be able to adapt to these changes and provide legitimate content. Even though I decided not to pursue a career in journalism. I will say that my former professor’s words remain true. As we all know President Trump often taunts mainstream news outlets and refers to the stories presented by reporters as ‘Fake News.” At this point in my life I understand why he constantly makes this assertion. We are in the digital age. Why wait and watch the news at 6 PM when I can get it on Twitter, Instagram Live, YouTube, etc.? What if I see the bias and unprofessional-ism in mainstream news? These factors have magnified the presence of podcast. A podcast is defined as a digital audio file that is available on the internet, computer, and mobile devices. Podcast are generally recorded as a series of episodes which can be received by subscribers.
