In this bonus episode of Inside Podcasting we hear from Martine Powers, the host of The Washington Post’s daily news podcast Post Reports. When Skye interviewed Martine in season one, the pair discussed what it’s been like to host her newspaper’s podcast. In this installment, Martine reveals her fantasy to “live on a beach with turtles,” what it was like to spend time reporting from her mother’s home country of Trinidad, how covering school shootings prompted her interest in finding a specific “beat,” and why the Transom Story Workshop is “like Disneyworld for people who love podcasts.”
