It’s like a photojournalist support group

I enjoy Dave and company’s banter. I’ll piggyback and caveat off how he described it: this is certainly a photojournalist support group with education and entertainment thrown in. I look forward to future episodes.

Great podcast for all levels

As a nascent photojournalist I find this podcast to be invaluable. It focuses (pardon the pun) on real world topics relevant to photo story tellers and the variety of guests is broad. These are all working professionals so you get a realistic view rather than a detached, academic view of photojournalism. I look forward to each episode which seem to be getting better and better. Thanks to David J Murphy and his co-hosts for doing this and please keep going!

Career Envy

Even though there is light-heart banter about the career of PJ I can feel the pain behind the words spoken by the hosts and the guests in this very real podcast. That is what makes this podcast a must-listen to for anyone interested in Photojournalism or just wanting to hear the stories of the experiences from the point of view of those that stand in the ferocious middle.
