Great job guys! I think that this is an extremely controversial case because many people have strong opinions about this. I think that you guys did a great job giving information on both sides.
nice guys. it was definitely a good idea to show both sides of the issue, and meaghan you did a good job to make sure you didn't show too much opinion as a host. I could definitely see both sides and you guys were very professional. I was wondering if it was difficult for you guys to research this topic without finding bias in the media, because people have such strong opinions on this issue.
Molly,It wasn't too awful to find research for this subject. Of course there was bias but we took information from many different sources with different stances on the subject. We also took information from write up about the case itself one of which was from SCOTUS blog.
i really enjoyed this podcast as you guys were all super profession and I liked hearing from Emmett and Shreya on their differing opinions about hobby lobby and you kept my interest during the entire podcast. very well done.
Guys this was so good. I really like how you clearly show both sides and that there was some debate between the two sides. Great job finding an expert who could draw from history and provide insight into the issue.
Good job guys! I really like how you added your own opinions into this piece. This helped to demonstrate some of the controversies that may be prevalent with this issue. I also really enjoyed that you brought in an outside guest speaker, it was interesting to hear his opinion especially when his class also examined this issue. Do you believe that in a case like this it is possible to receive news that is completely un-bias?
This was really impressive! I loved that you guys brought in a teacher who had also discussed this issue with his class...that was a really nice touch! In class we discussed the news cycle and how some stories get tossed out and thrown in the trash, whereas some stories continue to be recycled again and again. What do you think will become of this story? Do you think that it will keep coming back to our newsfeeds, or do you think that the controversy will last only a short while and die down?
You guys did a great job! I like how you covered all the bases, information wise, to inform the listeners and made the rest about each side of the spectrum give their opinions. You also got people from the "outside", engaging more people and the community in the podcasts. You guys made some really good calls on what was to be said on the podcast and made it enjoyable (kind of making it sound like a "fight" haha). Y'all made this topic flawless!!
My favorite part about this podcast was that you interviewed people from outside our class and incorporated their knowledge seamlessly. My question is.. do you think that peoples' attention will still be focused on this case in a few weeks, or will interest, and therefore coverage, have dropped?Thanks again for sharing, awesome job.
