Week 11 Topic of the week

April 29, 2010 at 1:07 pm (Comm 2322, Topic Of The Week) (, )

For this topic of the week I had the opportunity to listen to the podcast by For Immediate Release. I was able to listen to this podcast in its entirety while in a single setting. This podcast was over an hour long and kept my attention the entire time. Here is a description of this episode from the website:

Neville’s solo on Sunday and Shel’s on a plane; FIR Interview with Kelly Hoey published, Katie Paine’s NewComm Forum session is up; Shel’s review of NewComm Forum 2010; Neville looks at celebrity iPhone apps and Google Maps Navigation; a shout out to Effective Edge Communications for the revised FIR banner; listener comments; News That Fits: Marriott launches virtual meetings, how social media helped travelers during the Iceland volcano crisis, the Media Monitoring Minute with CustomScoop, Michael Netzley in Singapore reports on political unrest in Thailand, a Canadian company adopts Facebook as its official investor forum, Dan York reports on Facebook, Ning, and the open internet; music from Jeff Ronay; and more.”

I was able to write a short review in iTunes of this particular episode. Here is what I wrote:

As a student of public relations and communications at Southeastern University in Lakeland, FLorida, I greatly enjoyed listening to this podcast. This is my first time tuning in as a listener and it is safe to say it will not be the last time that I listen. I learned a great deal from this podcast from individuals that are in the heart of the corporate communications industry. In this episode, Neville Hobson was solo so I will need to listen again sometime when Shel Holtz as also on the show.

I believe listening to podcasts like this one can greatly benefit both students of public relations and also seasoned professionals. This is a great way to stay in touch with current events in the industry and listen to some great advice from some professionals.
