The Reynolds Center is delighted to unveil How to Cover Money, our new podcast, which is now live on iTunes.

Each week, my co-host, Mark Remillard and I look at a different topic of interest to journalists who cover money stories. Series One, which kicked off over the weekend, focuses on “Thinking Like A Business Journalist, Even When You’re Not One.”

Over the next 10 weeks, Mark and I will be looking at a variety of ideas that can help reporters get their arms around stories that have to do with money. We know that money can be a daunting subject, even for writers and broadcasters who’ve been covering companies for a while.

In future episodes, we’ll look at subjects such as:

  • Finding the money in politics
  • Telling business stories for broadcast
  • The art to covering sports and money
  • Talking to the owners of small businesses

Our podcast is free, and you can download it here. Each podcast runs about 10 minutes, making it easy to digest during a morning commute or over lunch.

Professors are welcome to play the podcast in class, and we’ll be offering discussion questions to get students engaged.

We’re planning three series of podcasts from now until summer, including our next set of episodes, which will feature Tips From Top Journalists. (Keep an eye out for more from Reynolds on this subject.)

So download, tap and enjoy How To Cover Money, the Reynolds Center podcast. Let us know what you think. We’re all ears.
