In this special bonus episode we introduce you to Sara Bernard, the host and producer of the Seattleland podcast. Three months ago, Sara moved from a staff writer role at Seattle Weekly, which like us is owned by Sound Publishing, into a multimedia producer role at the company’s King County News Desk. There she began working on this podcast, hitting the ground as a reporter while also coaxing stories out of her colleagues at the company’s many Seattle-area weeklies, including this one. In this making-of episode, editorial director Mark Baumgarten turns the tables on Sara and interviews her about the power of audio, what it’s like to launch a podcast, and what you can expect from Seattleland going forward. Oh, and they talk about stress. Lots of stress.
