From the unstoppable rise of the podcast and the latest mobile-friendly formats, to storytelling on social media platforms, or with games or virtual reality, new ways of telling -- and engaging -- audiences are emerging as quickly as the technology behind them appears. Our panelists will be sharing their experiences in new ways of storytelling, talking about how they did it and what they learned along the way. They'll also delve into the issues which effect the largest and smallest newsrooms, including how these projects can fit into limited budgets while working with existing skill sets, and discussing challenges and opportunities around creating compelling stories while staying true to our core work as investigative journalists.
