NewsHour’s Fascinating Top Notch Journalism in Podcast Format!

So interesting! Fantastic combination of adventure story, journalism and documentary. I loved the Last Continent video series on the NewsHour broadcast about Antarctica (a place I didn’t know much about) and this was a great companion piece. Gave a really unique view into the experience of the reporter and producers’ experience — what they see and feel while they’re experiencing a vast unknown territory and learning about what that territory is telling us about climate change. Definitely keep such podcast companions coming. I’ll be listening! PS - always include penguins, too. :)
