"One of the constraints that mainstream media faces is that everything needs to be condensed down to a single sentence quote or a 10-second sound byte for broadcast, and rarely do you ever get an in-depth story. Podcasting changes the equation significantly -- a podcast interview doesn't have time constraints or need to cram a certain number of commercials in every few minutes, so you get a fuller, more clear picture of the real story," said Christopher Penn, producer of the Financial Aid Podcast.
"Sound bites grab your attention, but they don't tell the story in any depth. For example, in speaking with Mr. Kopnisky, one point he made was that students and families need to strongly consider the cost of money, obtaining funding for education from the cheapest sources (scholarships and grants) first, followed by federal and then private student loans. Insights and reminders like these are essential tips for students, parents, and families to consider in the financial aid process, and I am happy to share with my listeners," said Mr. Penn.
