Picking a Topic

Written by Sierra Zimmer

Picking a topic for a podcast is tricky, it’s like being given one rule to write an essay. In this class, the rule was that the topic had to be integrated with ICT (Information and Communications Technology). So to figure out where to start: list your interests; you’re going to spend lots of time researching it. After making a list, figure out which of these has a connection to ICT. Continuing after that is where the research starts. The best way I found, was to just type the interest and ICT into Google Scholar and seeing how many articles it connects with in the last 4-5 years. Choose one that has a significant amount of sources and continue from there. Congratulations, you now have a topic!
