Podcasts can also be great for Public Relations majors/minors. For instance the software Photoshop is awesome but very intricate. When working with a new software many users find it helpful for direction and instruction. Yeah anybody can read the directions the software comes with but wouldn’t you rather someone show you how to use it? Podcast is the answer. Downloading informative videos that show users step-by-step instructions. Giving the ability to pause and rewind when the instruction needs to be repeated.
