Lessons Learned Podcast Debuts, Highlighting Station Stories
Google+ shareEmail share

From case studies and webinars to conference panels and Facebook humblebrags, we love hearing about station success stories. There is something about unique station projects that puts a smile on our faces whenever we hear or read about them. These stories help inspire others, spur collaboration, and move us forward together.

On the SPI team, we are always looking for new ways to share these stories of local ingenuity, and we thought it was time to take some inspiration from stations and try something new ourselves. Four months ago, we shared an audio story of Katrina Kehoe from KLRN and Tom Dooley of WXXI taking about their experience at TechCon 2018. Based on the positive feedback we received to the article, we decided to start a podcast!

Lessons Learned is a bi-weekly podcast featuring stations talking to each other about their successes, failures, and the lessons learned along the way. In each episode colleagues at different stations have a conversation about anything from leadership to new technologies to content strategy and everything in-between. 

Below you will find the first episode, a conversation about VR, AR, and 360 video production. New episodes will be posted here on the SPI Blog, included in the Weekly Update newsletter, posted in the PBS Digital Station Solutions Facebook group, and available through the Lessons Learned RSS feed (http://bit.ly/LessonsLearnedPod). Subscribe today so you don't miss an episode.

Let us know what you think of the show; send us topics you would like to hear about; or share your successes to possibly be featured in an upcoming episode.

Thanks for listening!


Curious about VR, AR, and 360 video? Wondering where in the world to begin? Chad Davis of NET Nebraska and Charlotte Cushing of South Florida PBS talk about how to get started with this type of production and why they think public media should join this space.
