Freelance Forum 2023 Podcast Series

Welcome to the Freelance Forum 2023 Podcast Series

For 2023 we are trying something different. Instead of a Spring and Autumn series of podcasts, clustered around live events, we will upload a new podcast monthly.

It took a little time to get the project organised, so our first episode of the year is in February.

You can listen to this and all podcasts from the Freelance Forum, including archive recordings of Forum events going back several years, using the podcatcher app of your choice, or at the Freelance Forum Soundcloud page from Dublin Freelance.

Freelance Forum podcast episode 54: Dan Kennedy on Local News

Gerard Cunningham talks with Dan Kennedy, professor of Journalism at Northeastern University about the state of modern journalism, the future of local news, serving local communities, social media and journalism, and the possible impacts of “artificial intelligence” on newsrooms.

You can follow Dan Kennedy on his blog, Media Nation.
