Podcasts

I’m doing a 9-month course which will turn me, Cinderella-like, into a broadcast journalist. It’s basically 9-5, five days a week, and involves a lot of hard work. None of this sitting on my hands, waiting for others to catch up that you might get on other courses.

All this hard work makes listening to the “RaW Speech podcast” rather painful. Because evidently it’s possible to make fantastic radio without sitting through two hours of shorthand every morning!

If I had iTunes or something I’m sure I’d be addicted to Fresh Perspective, but I’ll just have to keep checking the site manually to see when a new one is uploaded. It’s the Diary of ‘Miss C’, a wide-eyed fresher, and is completely brilliant.

Similarly good was Episode 1 of Menace to Society, which checks out some of the least well-known societies and shines the spotlight of publicity on them. This week it was the new(ish) Pole Dancing society, and the report was very professionally produced, except for a few very small sound level issues. I think even my tutors (who aren’t backward in coming forward with criticisms) would say it was very well done.

Listen to Menace to Society below, or head over to the podcast to listen to all of the highlights. I’m going to go and cry myself back to sleep now, wondering why I’m spending several thousand pounds on my course*.

*Not really.

    In the interest of journalistic accuracy I think you should amend that last sentence about why “I’m spending several thousand pounds….” Your Dad
