Inspiring workshops on documentary podcasting hosted by UBC History Alumnus, Sam Fenn, & his colleague Alexander Kim
History students and faculty were treated to three workshops hosted by Sam Fenn and Alexander Kim in the month of March. Themes in the workshops included: Research & Story, Interviewing for the story, & Podcasting Basics.
Sam and Alex are the producers of two popular podcasts: Cited, an award-winning documentary radio show about how ideas change the world (not always in postive ways) and the newly released Crackdown, a podcast about drugs, drug policy and the drug war led by drug user activists and supported by research.
Before getting into journalism, Alex studied Neuroscience at the University of Calgary and Sam Fenn completed both a Bachelor's Degree and Master's Degree in History.
