If you have ever listened to Podcasts on iTunes, you know that it can be very addictive. For this Topics of the Week post, I was asked to listen to a PR Podcast for an hour and reflect. I have been listening to PRStudCast for the past two hours while working out and I feel like it is now time for me to relay to the masses about how great this Podcast is.
Harrison Kratz, founder and co-host of PRStudCast has put together an amazing program and has interviewed some very interesting and creative people. His website is basically a classroom where he brings in guest speakers to give their expertise to students and professionals who are either looking to go into PR or are already involved in PR. PRStudCast also features weekly trending topics to help those seeking information in the PR industry.
The most recent post from PRStudCast is an interview with Jess Ostroff who is an up and coming entrepeneur and virtual assistant to Jay Baer, Jason Falls, Brian Clark and several other media gurus. During her interview, she gave a brief personal history about how she got involved in PR and how she had to put herself out there in order to become successful in her field. Her advice to students looking to go into PR is to consider whether the student wants a dream job, or a lavish lifestyle and build their career around that idea.
PRStudCast is a great Podcast for students. The many guest speakers that Harrison is able to interview gives insight into what PR is like from every angle. If you haven’t yet, please go listen to this program, but be careful, time flies by when listening to this incredible show!
