The Politics of Everything

Jan 2, 2018

Journalism is a subject that means more to me than almost anything else. I started my career as a print journalist 20 years ago, but I actually held a passion for the daily news world even as a young child. Today’s guest is Julie Posetti is an award-winning Australian journalist and academic. She is the author of a major UNESCO study, Protecting Journalism Sources in the Digital Age, published in affiliation with WAN-IFRA. She has worked at Fairfax Media and is former editor, presenter and reporter with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC).

In 2014-15 she was based in Paris as Research Fellow and Editor with the World Editors Forum and the World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers. Previously an Assistant Professor and Lecturer in Journalism at two Australian universities, she is currently a Journalism Fellow at the University of Wollongong. Julie has consulted widely to media organisations on the digital transformation of journalism, and delivered extensive social media training. Here she digs deep about The Politics of Journalism.

Listen on to hear from Julie about:

  1. What makes a great journalist and whether we can all learn the craft.
  2. What the role of social media outlets are in the issue of ‘fake news’.
  3. Why podcasting has become a vital part of the modern media landscape in the past decade, and her experience of having worked on an award winning podcast series Phoebe’s fall.
