IAB UK Connected | Season 2 Episode 7: 'Today in Focus', with The Guardian's Rachel Humphreys

Posted on: Wednesday 29 July 2020 | IAB UK

They say you should never meet your heroes, but in our latest episode, interviewer becomes interviewee as James speaks to Rachel Humphreys, co-host and producer of his favourite podcast, The Guardian's Today in Focus. It was, Rachel tells James, a Guardian staffer who invented the word "podcast" and The Guardian has long been committed to using audio to tell its stories. In this extended episode, Rachel talks to James about how she and the rest of the Today in Focus team put together each episode, gives her view on why news podcasts offers a much-needed break from the breaking news cycle and reveals her top tips for recording at home.

For more information about how we are supporting our members at this time, as well as resources and trends from across the industry, take a look at our IAB UK Connected hub.
