The voice of Indianapolis

IBJ’s first venture into the podcasting world successfully continues a growing need for podcast reporting at the local level. Whether a listener is commuting downtown, sipping their morning coffee or working at their desk, the funky intro beat appropriately ushers them into the day’s top news story. Solid interviews introduce the listener to story subjects and the reporters who break the story. Host Mason King is a smooth moderating talking head who asks the right questions to journalists. However, the podcast is missing an overview of other top IBJ stories. My personal taste for news podcasts include a list of quick news bits from the day’s paper at the beginning or end of a podcast. Maybe a quick sound bite of an interview to accompany the news bits too. Although, I just listened to the podcast about the Indiana Pacers Bike Share program and loved how the episode interviewed one of the sources. Even though it could have benefitted from King’s direction, Scholette’s interview with the program director stood out from previous episodes because it gives a source of the story a voice as well. Perhaps interviewing sources could become a staple for future episodes? Originally from around South Bend, the bike share story in particular draws parallels with the increase in scooter and bike share programs around ND. The program subjects such as the midterm elections speak in accordance to Indianapolis, but like every local area, some subjects contribute to the national conversation. Kudos to IBJ for starting on the right foot and getting ahead of the curve. The Indy Star and other local media need to be taking notes.
