This October, I will be joining 9 other flash briefing creators to share what we have learned around all things micro-casting. For those who might not be familiar with Flash Briefings, they’re essentially short-form podcasts that typically range anywhere from 1-7 minutes. During The Voice of the Flash Briefing online event, the 10 of us, along with the host, Bradley Metrock, will present on how we utilize our flash briefing and what we our key takeaways are from experimenting with this new medium. The other panelists include:
