Event description

Description

Every piece of audio journalism you hear, on the radio or in a podcast, doesn’t spring from the minds of its creators fully-formed. Instead, it’s the result of a series of very small, and very many decisions. (94 is just an estimate.) It’s the result of countless conversations and questions, such as Who should we talk to? What should we ask? What should we focus on? What’s the best way to tell this story? 

In this talk, KUOW’s Anna Boiko-Weyrauch walks through the creation of one podcast episode, starting with the very first decision through the final production. 

ABOUT THURSDAYS WITH KUOW

An NPR/PBS Newshour/Marist poll found that 68 percent of Americans do not have much confidence or any at all in the press. Additionally, according to a Pew Research Center poll, 83 percent of people in the Seattle area say they have never spoken with a local journalist.

In an effort to counteract the erosion of trust in media, deepen the public’s understanding of journalism and ensure our community's voices are reflected in our reporting, KUOW invites you to a series of free public presentations and conversations with KUOW reporters. At each meeting, the journalist will talk about their work, answer your questions about the journalistic process and hear from you on what topics and stories are important to you and your community.
