Welcome to the 4th podcast episode of this side series, the Podcast Spotlight. In this episode, we talk with freelance writer and local podcaster, Davelle Lee, as she introduces the following 2 podcasts:

Podcast 1: Reply All

Reply All is a tech-themed podcast from Gimlet Media. It is presented by co-hosts Alex Goldman and PJ Vogt, and presents a journalistic look into the wacky and weird world of internet culture. Episodes include an in-house phising experiment, tracing phantom phone calls, and an ad for the worst day of your life.

Generally speaking, the shows are very well-produced, well-researched, and all around entertaining. And with the co-host format, the topics are presented in a relatively candid manner. Listen to this if you love casual shows and internet culture.


Podcast 2: On the Media

On the Media (OTM) is an hour-long weekly radio program, hosted by Bob Garfield and Brooke Gladstone, covering journalism, technology, and First Amendment issues. It is produced by WNYC in New York City.

As defined by co-host Garfield, On the Media covers “…anything that reaches a large audience—either electronically or otherwise…. Plus, throw into that anything that covers First Amendment issues; anything that has to do with freedom of speech, privacy, is also in our portfolio.”[3] The show explores how the media are changing, and their effects on America and the world. Many stories are centered on events of the previous week and how they were covered in the news. These often consist of interviews with reporters about the dilemmas they face in covering controversial issues.
