She became curious about the impact of voice recorders to journalism and the news industry when she heard about the ‘lost techniques’ of journalists from senior colleagues and witnessed how a recorder saved a journalist’s career.

Bibliography & Design Justification
Someone might also do an interview with you and they might talk about four different programs for their iPhones on how to record an interview, and I’ll just think: “Uhhh, you can’t use your iphone.”
