Podcast

At the beginning of the year I pitched this section because I loved podcasts, and because my friends were sick of me talking about my favourite shows incessantly. I’ve had a wonderful experience writing reviews and interviewing some of my favourite hosts. A special thank you goes out to Laura and Tim for accommodating the section, and to contributors Alex Feinson, Dennis Lim, and Hannah Patterson for their superb efforts. If you are interested in writing about podcasts for Salient in 2018, email the editors over the summer (editor@salient.org.nz) — you won’t regret it, I promise. Similarly, if you are thinking about making your own podcast, go for it! Podcasting is a great way to hear more from the voices often marginalised in mainstream media. You can make a podcast about anything; the more niche, the better. To help, I’ve assembled this handy guide:
