Voices Podcast Collective

   Welcome to the Voices Podcast Collective, a new page on this blog dedicated to podcasts!
   The growing popularity of podcasts symbolizes a new, dynamic trend of listening to stories, rather than viewing or reading them.
   On this page will be a growing collection of Voices of the Media podcasts, 30-minute shows that feature interviews with the local media: photojournalists, journalists, radio and tv personalities, and behind-the-scenes techies. 
   The show airs on OCCR (download the app) every other Thursday at the 2 p.m. hour.

    Voices of the Media podcast #1 | March 2018
    Guest Sarah Elms | Toledo Blade City Hall reporter
    Host Lori King 
          
       For my first Voices of the Media show, I featured Toledo Blade reporter Sarah Elms. We discussed reporters using smartphones as a visual storytelling tool, rather than a traditional DSLR camera.
       The following links below are published smartphone videos and photos provided by Sarah. They offer a good insight into the power of what a reporter can do with a smartphone.
    • Cat show! Probably my best video so far. Shot with an iPhone 7
    • Here's an example of a video where I wish so badly I had a microphone
    • Another video I wish I had a microphone 
    • Here's a Facebook Live  I did
    • One more videolicious 
    • The first video with this story is mine. I just took it with my phone and Tweeted it
    • For this video, I wish I only had the woman narrating and put B-roll over her talking instead of me. Still an example of how you can improve
    • Here's an example of spot news where I was the only one on scene and so had to shoot photos with my iPhone
    • Another example of shooting my own photos when no photog was available. Note the {horrible} quality
    • The first photo in this slideshow is mine. Again, we couldn't send a photog, so I shot it. An example of me getting out of my comfort zone and getting close to someone to snap their photo.
