J501: Sound Salon

This week’s class was inspired by NPR reporter Mandalit del Barco’s Sound Salon session, which she routinely runs at the National Association of Hispanic Journalists conference.

Think mini film festival, but with audio stories. I didn’t get to play them all, but here is the playlist I created:
