How To Cover Money: First Podcast Season Complete!

by March 23, 2015

This winter, we’ve brought you the inaugural season of How To Cover Money, the Reynolds Center podcast. Our theme for Series 1 has been “Thinking Like A Business Reporter, Even When You’re Not One.”

Now, our first podcast series is complete, and we’re excited about your response. How To Cover Money has consistently ranked among the top 100 business-themed podcasts on iTunes. Professors and teachers across the country have used our podcast in their classes, and relied on our lesson plans to spark student discussions.

My co-host Mark Remillard and I launched How To Cover Money with a simple idea: offer people ways to find the money in any story. And we’ll keep giving you tips in our podcast in doing just that.

Here's our podcast co-host, Mark Remillard.
