Reading articles online is just one of the ways to get Daily Memphian content. As you may have noticed, we recently started rolling out Daily Memphian podcasts.

Hosted by the OAM Network, The Daily Memphian currently offers Grizzlies, Tigers and Politics podcasts. On Saturday, Feb. 9, The Daily Memphian is adding Destination Delicious, featuring Daily Memphian food and dining editor Jennifer Biggs. Biggs will talk with Rebecca Dinstuhl, president of Dinstuhl's Fine Candy Co. Inc., about Valentine’s Day candy.

Daily Memphian podcasts can be accessed anywhere people get podcasts, including Spotify, Stitcher or iTunes. Both subscribers and nonsubscribers can listen to episodes.

“Podcasts are an essential part of our reaching even more people in the Memphis area,” said Eric Barnes, president and executive editor of The Daily Memphian. “Not only are the podcasts interesting and informative, but they’re also a chance for our readers to get to know more about our reporters and writers.”

Podcast episodes are meant to move stories forward versus acting as merely a supplement for Daily Memphian articles. Episodes include staff interviewing other staff members, guests from the community and sometimes a mix of both.

“Because we don’t have video, I feel really fortunate I’m here to witness the conversations in person,” said Natalie Van Gundy, Daily Memphian multimedia director. “I’m looking forward to when we have (recorded video of podcasts).”

In the future, The Daily Memphian plans to schedule the weekly podcasts to air on specific days of the week. At a later point, some podcasts could also be recorded on location.

In addition to Daily Memphian podcasts, we team up with our partner High Ground News for their “On the Ground” podcasts.

“We’re excited about the following we have, but hope it increases as more content comes out,” Van Gundy said.
