I haven’t advised yearbook for 15 years, but even though I left yearbook, yearbook never left me. Listening to these podcasts makes me remember the possibilities and potential of the journalistic yearbook. Thank you for taking the time to thoughtfully and thoroughly document the people who help students realize the magic of publications. Just as importantly, thank you for inspiring the new and future advisers who will help the next wave of journalists realize their potential.
Thank you for seeking out information & just sharing what you do. I am a total yearbook nerd so these are my new favorite podcasts. Thank you!
This podcast is a godsend! As a second year adviser with no previous journalism experience, having this podcast at my fingertips to help me continually improve is amazing. Each episode has been extremely helpful! Keep them coming.
