One of the Social Media module assignments at Tipperary Institute concerns essays that students submit to compare and contrast two shows from different channels in This Week in Tech. There are lessons media students and professional broadcasters can learn from how news shows are researched, produced and syndicated. Two of my most-frequently downloaded shows are This Week in Tech and Buzz Out Loud. Both of these shows now offer High Quality video downloads and although more people listen to the audio versions of these shows, there is an element of best practise in how Leo Laporte and the CNET Buzz Crew do their business. Some of that best practise will emerge as findings documented by student esssays. I think there are follow-on findings that might pique the interest of Ireland's national broadcaster.
