The J Word: A Podcast by Journalism Practice

Robert (Ted) Gutsche Jr.

What is journalism? How can we make it better? What does "better" look like? We talk about some of these questions -- and answer them -- in our discussions with academics and professionals who've published recently in Journalism Practice. We focus on meanings of advancing digital technologies in journalism, social issues and conditions that journalists (need to) cover, and the future of the field. Articles featured in the episodes are temporarily made free access for citizens, journalists, scholars, and students. While the discussions are rooted in research, they are approached to influence practice. The podcast is hosted and produced by Robert (Ted) Gutsche, Jr., a former journalist, Associate Editor at Journalism Practice, and an Associate Professor (Senior Lecturer) in Critical Digital Media Practice at Lancaster University in the U.K. Follow him on Twitter @RobertGutscheJr and the podcast @JournPractice or email us with ideas and feedback at [email protected]
