The Power of Podcasts
I began reporting for NPR in the 1970s, just a few years after the network was founded. In those halcyon days, we had a lot of time to fill and so we were encouraged to do long interviews and highly produced, sound-rich stories. Those days are gone, except when it comes to podcasts which now — to my delight — have gone global. Especially in regions of the world with rich story-telling traditions.
