The Podcast Promise

Toronto, Feb. 6, 2020 - Podcasting has become a rare bright spot for the news industry. According to a recent report from the Reuters Institute at Oxford University, the number of news podcasts globally rose by almost 12,000 in just 10 months, between January and October 2019. Whether it be true crime investigations, daily news, marginalized voices, niche topics or in-depth conversations, podcasts are also taking hold throughout Canada. What is this popular new journalism all about and why does it matter to the profession’s future?
