It's All Journalism will be celebrating its fifth year as a weekly podcast on Aug. 4. For most of that time, we've used a generic theme song that was purchased through a rights-free website. While we liked that music, in recent days, we've come to feel it was a bit utilitarian and didn't represent who we are now as a podcast.
It was time for a change.
In this special podcast, Nick DePrey joins us in studio to discuss the new It's All Journalism theme music. With a musical career spanning two decades, Nick's work has appeared on NPR, Gimlet Media and KQED. In his day job, he works in Washington, D.C., as NPR's digital programming analytics manager.
You might've also noticed that we recently updated our logo. That's the handiwork of cartoonist and graphic artist Carolyn Belefski.
The new theme music and artwork are just two examples of how we're trying to make our podcast a better experience for you. Stay tuned for more announcements coming soon.
