Podcast ‘A Matter of Facts’: Marcus Funk and podcasts
In a world with Facebook, Twitter, 24/7 news channels, radio, citizen journalism, fake news, real news, the public is drowning in an overwhelming information overload. Clearly, a guide is needed to identify what is a trustworthy and reliable source of news and information.
Delaware Humanities Podcast – A matter of facts – looks at this topic as part of its mission to engage, educate and inspire all Delawarians through cultural programs. In Season 2 of the podcast, he takes a closer look at popular sources of news and information.
This week on The Green, we bring you the last episode of A matter of facts, with a podcast conversation with Marcus Funk of Sam Houston State University.
Funk is an associate professor of mass communication at Sam Houston State. His research focuses on community and online journalism, and he has written about the role of podcasts in these contexts.
