Hit the podcast link for a 37 minute interview with New York-based, freelance journalist, journalism professor and blogger, Sandeep Junnarkar. I asked Sandeep about Lives in Focus, his mulitimedia blog journalism project, which aims to give voice to "those who are rarely given space or time in traditional news media." The initial project looks at the impact of India’s new patent law on the HIV+ population. I’m pitching a feature about blog-based journalism. I Skyped Sandeep to find out more. It’s a 35MB download… Woah. Too big? Read about the project at Online Journalism Review. As soon as (and if) I land a commission I’ll blog more.
UPDATE: I now have a commission from the UK press. Deadline mid-February.
