Making a First Im-PRESS-ion

By Elena Fernández Collins and Wil Williams | Friday July 19, 2019

We’re talking about talking to the press. Whenever I bring up reaching out to the press, I get this response almost like people don’t realize they can? People seem to really undersell themselves and get really intimidated. Every podcast journalist I know wants this medium and its creators to succeed. So I think that’s step one for getting people on the right track: journalists who cover podcasts want you to succeed.
