New Content Strategy Podcast and Other Good Resources
Hey podcast listeners, check out Content Talks, a new podcast by Brain Traffic on content strategy. The first episode features Kristina Halverson interviewing Ann Rockley about content strategy issues. It's a great interview, and Ann sounds lively and engaged.
Kristina steers Ann towards detailed stories and experiences as they make their way through a host of content issues. Kristina says they will be producing a weekly podcast show. The audio quality in this show is superb, by the way.
While you're listening to podcasts, check out several others as well. The Spoolcast from Jared Spool is full of relevant discussions for designers, communicators, information architects, illustrators, web managers, and more. In particular, check out one of his recent shows, Stephen Anderson, the Quest for Emotional Engagement.
I also enjoy Tech Nation with Dr. Moira Gunn. Moira is a skilled interviewer, and her topics are engaging with a general technical interest. In particular, I especially enjoyed The Internet Age of Journalism episode.
If you also enjoy webinars, both Scott Abel of The Content Wrangler and Sarah O'Keefe of Scriptorium produce regular webinars. You can listen to Scott's interview with Richard Hamilton on Managing Technical Writing Teams. And check out Scriptorium's DITA Best Practices webinar on Scriptorium with Tony Self.
I'm also planning to produce more regular podcasts. My most recent podcast was an interview with Donna Spencer on Information Architecture.
