I’ve been having fun answering questions about podcasting posed by students in my friend Joan Vinall-Cox’s Documentary Scripting class at the University of Toronto (Mississauga). In this 21-minute podcast, I answer some of those questions. Around the 14-minute mark, you will also hear some interesting comments about Trafcom News Podcast 101: How to be a terrific podcast guest.
