So as a kick off to a blog that I should have began writing months ago, I'd like to announce (or give a refresher for some), the How To Cover Money podcast from the Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism at Arizona State University.
About eight or nine months ago, Micki Maynard (Director of Reynolds Center and Forbes contributor) and I began working on this podcast to provide a resource for journalists of all types, from novices to experts, on how to go about finding the money in stories. Whether someone is an aspiring business journalists or simply looking for a way to bolster their stories with hard facts, each week Micki and I dive into different topics and challenges that journalists face.
At the beginning of 2015, we launched the podcast's first series, "Thinking like a business reporter, even if you're not one," which was comprised of 10 episodes. From how to handle sports and money, to dealing with big-name CEOs, Micki and I explore a number of ways journalists can get a jump start on covering money.
The first series wrapped up just about two weeks ago, but Micki and I are already hard at work on our second series, "Tips from Top Journalists."
We spent a couple hours in the studio on Saturday and completed recording the first three episodes of series two, which will launch this Friday 4/10/15!

All 10 episodes are still available online if you want to take a listen and catch up, otherwise subscribe and listen as we begin series two this week!
