Sharing the Message of the Marginalized w/Paula Blair

Paula Blair talks about her experience as a podcast host on Audiovisual Cultures. Her focus is on exposing the work of marginalized individuals in film.

We discussed her experiences and challenges after 4 years of podcasting. She also gave some tips that can help us level up our shows.


  • When using Zoom for recording set background suppression to the lowest level to improve audio.
  • Wear headphones when recording – good advice for guests and hosts.
