- Structure – What is the form of a podcast? How are they organized? What devices signal that organization? What conventions do we notice?
- Process – What might the process of creating a podcast look like? (break this down into specific, small steps) How are podcasts composed?
- Effectiveness – What makes for a “good” podcast? What makes for a “bad” podcast? Think of specific rhetorical strategies, composing choices, elements of design/craft, structural choices…
