Jonathan Kern, author of Sound Reporting: The NPR Guide to Audio Journalism and Production, was a guest last Sunday on NPR’s Weekend Edition. On the show Kern joined host Liane Hansen in an interesting discussion about broadcast journalism and the phenomenon of the “driveway moment,” which the NPR website explains as “a term used to describe a radio story that keeps you in your car after you’ve reached your destination, just to listen.”
You can find a podcast of the show at the NPR website.
