It’s All Journalism: Ouroboros – Podcast Eats Its Tail

It’s All Journalism is a weekly conversation about the changing state of the media and the future of journalism.

Our podcast is based on conversations we have with journalists about how they do their jobs. Occasionally, someone asks us about how we do our podcast and we have a conversation about that.

That was the case when Shannon McHale, a graduating senior at the Philip Merrill College of Journalism at the University of Maryland, contacted us about an article she was writing for the American Journalism Review about podcasts that journalists should be listening to.

Hey, we’re journalists. We do a podcast.

We were flattered and agreed to talk to Shannon, but with one catch — we’d record the interview and post it as a podcast.

We’re podcasters. We talk to journalists. That’s what we do.

Shannon was game.

She asked her questions. We asked ours. She learned a little bit about us. We learned a little bit about her. That’s a podcast.

Once Shannon posts her story, we’ll add the link.
