PODCAST: DispatchCast

DispatchCast is the official podcast of the Brainerd Dispatch, north-central Minnesota’s only daily newspaper, offering stories that reel you in. The Dispatch has been sharing the stories of the lives of lakes area residents since 1881, but our reporters haven't been here that long. We take journalism seriously, but ourselves -- not so much. Newsroom conversation is more likely to be centered on food and trivia than anything else.

Examining issues relevant both to area residents as well as the wider population, the podcast seeks to dive deeper into stories its award-winning reporters cover in print. It includes extended interviews, recorded speeches and looks behind the scenes of the newspaper’s production. The topics covered span across a wide range -- the focus is on excellent storytelling and offering listeners a new way to experience stories that matter to them.
