Ethical codes for newsrooms are often crafted by people who don’t bear much resemblance to the audiences they’re covering. In this course, participants will learn how to create ethical codes for their podcasts based on their own values, and those of their audiences. Best practices in transparency, accuracy, sourcing and booking will also be discussed, all tailored to the needs of independent producers.
