I was the digital project manager for the award-winning collaborative podcast “Open and Shut” – produced by Wisconsin Watch and Wisconsin Public Radio. Open and Shut is a seven-part investigative series that took more than three years to make. My role included project managing the web presence, text, photos, documents and deadlines across two news organizations.
Among other tasks, I created a project management board in Asana with 180 cards, each representing a deadline. Those included approving final audio and web scripts, legal review, tracking, scoring, mixing, photo planning, web production, and marketing for each episode. It included creating graphics, planning a Crowdcast, sending out joint press releases with WPR and crafting a social media plan.
