A week from today, several hosts and writers from NPR, as well as the founder of DecodeDC, will meet at George Washington University’s Marvin Center to discuss the future of radio and podcasting.

Presented by GW’s School of Media and Public Affairs (SMPA), the event will feature Barbara Bradley Hagerty, distinguished fellow at SMPA (moderator); Linda Holmes, host of NPR’s Monkey See Blog; Guy Raz, host/editorial director of NPR’s “TED Radio Hour” and Shapiro Fellow at SMPA; Andrea Seabrook, founder of DecodeDC; and Alix Spiegel, science desk correspondent and co-host of NPR’s “Invisibilia.”

The audio journalists will examine how digital media is changing the way in which audio entertainment is produced and consumed — their discussion will include topics such as the direction of the industry in terms of broadcast radio, podcasts, streaming, on-demand subscriptions and smartphone applications, and why it matters to journalism overall.
