My professor assigned my class to listen to NPR's podcast called, "Lighthouses, Autopsies, and the Federal Government". Sounds like it would be the tagline for a cheesy crime novel that has a love triangle involving a woman who runs a lighthouse and an FBI agent, doesn't it? Nope, this podcast discussed the federal budget and what exactly should the government pay for.
I really enjoyed how the two journalists, Adam Davidson and David Kestenbaum, made it seem very casual and explained why this specific podcast title was chosen. This complicated topic (and title) dealt with topics that could be considered difficult for the audience to understand, but Davidson and Kestenbaum made it simpler and more accessible for listeners. This made sure that the duo kept viewers and did not lose them once they got into more of the intricacies of the federal budget.
