CCATP #431 “What’s a Producer?” With Jennie Josephson

Jennie Josephson, Senior Advisor to the Daily Tech News Show, joins us this week to try and answer a question I’ve had for a long time, “What’s a producer?” Jennie is qualified to answer this question with her background in radio and news production over the years. You’ll hear her try to answer this question through story telling about what it was like to go with Dan Rather to see the Dali Lama in India and how she got lunch for the crew during a shoot. It’s a delightful discussion filled with entertaining anecdotes that will give you a glimpse into a producer’s world.

    I have not been a regular listener since my retirement from “the company” last August. I have tried to catch (CCATP) “Bart Bits” (I think I will copyright that!) on security and “Programming By Stealth”, etc, stuff. But, apparently like you, I have often wondered what were the duties of a “Producer.” So I was intrigued, and rewarded, by your conversation with Jennie Josephson. Thanks.

    The show also served as a pleasant reminder of my time hanging out with you and Tom Merritt at Disney World.
