Episode 4: Tumblr’s Election Coverage, Life at the RNC
Sent to Tampa on assignment for Tumblr, Meg Lanker-Simons took the Republican National Convention by storm. In just a few short days, she produced a steady stream of content, including audio interviews with everyone from former RNC chairman Michael Steele to Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson. I recently wrote about Tumblr’s editorial coverage for Forbes and thought Meg would be a natural fit for On The Program. She joins us to speak about her experiences at the RNC and the experience of reporting for Tumblr’s election blog. (Editors note: This episode is longer than usual)

Here’s this week’s podcast featuring Meg Lanker-Simons who covered the RNC for Tumblr a few weeks ago. Interesting stuff on how she landed a bunch of great interview while in Tampa.
Here’s me being interviewed by Alex Kantrowitz, who wrote the wicked fabulous article for Forbes about the coverage we Tumblr correspondents brought to the internets during the RNC and DNC. Take a listen for some behind the scenes nerdery.
