Toronto Mike'd Critically Reviewed by Media Students: Part One
Last month, I made the trek to Oshawa to speak with media students at Durham College. This class was given an assignment to critically review an episode of Toronto Mike'd. They were allowed to choose any episode they pleased.
I was given the opportunity to read these critiques, which I found fascinating. There was much praise, but I naturally focused on the negative. In a tweet storm yesterday afternoon, I shared some of what I read. Here are those tweets.
This student digs the vibe of Kick out the Jams eps! pic.twitter.com/fGcUSdfAod— Toronto Mike (@torontomike) December 4, 2018
Although I will naturally focus on the negative, most of the feedback is really positive. Considering none of these students are old enough to get 99% of my references, this is high praise! pic.twitter.com/Yn3iZkWL50— Toronto Mike (@torontomike) December 4, 2018
This student's comment reminds me of the time my 100%er brother told me he wouldn't listen if I devoted an entire episode to cycling. pic.twitter.com/3VCZwPsM9P— Toronto Mike (@torontomike) December 4, 2018

In a future entry, I'll share the three aspects of podcasting I struggle with most. Some of these conundrums were reiterated in these students' papers.
400+ episodes in, I still have much to learn.
