This week, we are bringing you interviews from Maximum Fun and the Columbia Journalism Review’s new podcast, The Turnaround! Jesse Thorn sits down with some of our greatest living interviewers to bring you raw conversations about journalism, broadcasting, and what it’s like to do what they do. You can subscribe now in Apple Podcasts, and catch the first episode on June 22nd!
This week, Jesse sits down with Audie to talk about how she got into broadcasting and the difference between working in broadcasting and print journalism. She tells us what it’s like to work at such an established news institution like NPR, and why the word “dispassionate” does not describe her and her fellow broadcasters.
You can listen to Audie Cornish every weekday on NPR’s All Things Considered on your local NPR affiliate station.
Marc and Jesse talk about what it’s like recording his very popular show in his garage, his tactics for getting people to open up to him, and the differences between his stand up and podcast personas.
Katie talks about what it’s like to host a morning news show and about the questions that she’s embarrassed to ask. Plus, she gives us tips on what to do if you want to get out of a conversation at a party.
