What’s working…

The story stack is excellent.  Very little crime, yet still very interesting and relevant.  Jim!

Joe and Val get better and better, smoother and smoother.

Better cross talk between Joe and Val.

What needs more attention…

Let’s change the format a little bit: how about having a short cut from Mike’s piece in the lead for his breast cancer stories that appears in the main newscast?

Greek Fest as a long form feels like a filler.  It’s long, dry, and would have been more entertaining with music and nat sound, especially since it talked about drink and dancing.

Writing: a train collision story as “wire style” attribution.  A sex crime story starts with “a Portland man” rather than the nature of the crime.

Audio Examples…

Opening cast.  Jim’s artistry, Joe and Val’s smother sound.  Clunky writing…
