“ Creating a podcast that tells a story is entirely different from writing a report. Creating a podcast is, dare I say it, fun! Learning about how to hunt a story is like learning to hunt for a mysterious animal, adept at hiding, but powerless against a friendly interviewer with well-timed, well thought-out, open-ended questions. The search for a story takes the project creator out of their windowless dorm room or stuffy apartment , and away from their computer (for the time being). Podcast story hunting takes the author character hunting, forcing them to contact people they may not otherwise meet, interacting with them one-on-one, building a rapport, and learning to ask the right questions to delve deeper into what their character might have to say. Interviewing this character forces the podcast author to become a listener .” - AGRO 461 student
