Meta Journalism, Media Literacy, Podcasting, and...Autism?
Posted Oct 23 2008 2:10pm
There's been a bit of buzz about the recent NY Times article on Film Studies as "the new MBA." I agree with the notion that there is a growing connection between influence and media literacy (particularly, digital media literacy). In today's podcast I talk about several seemingly unrelated events...a grant supported project here at the college where we are developing a podcast site to spotlight music performed by individuals with autism, and a visit by a local reporter from our very own Keene Sentinel who interviewed me about my interests in podcasting (I turned the tables and, in turn, interviewed the reporter about his thoughts on podcasting). We podcasters are a small group right now (about 2,000 according to March Wired ), but we are anything but humble. We're narrowcasting our programs to audiences that really appreciate what we do...and for now, that's plenty reinforcing.
