For Your Ears Only is an audio series of eight installments that explores the distinctiveness of podcasting and its creative, literary and social potential. Through interviews with the producers and executives, close listenings, and discussion, For Your Ears Only offers a fresh language for approaching the innovation and dynamism of podcasting. It also uses podcasting to probe larger media debates in areas such as: intimacy and media-facilitated empathy; new media editing, rhetorical devices and poetics; new media audience construction, fandom and social media integration; new media journalism ethics; cultural commitments to narrative; youth media and the charge of “narcissism”; and others.  The series is presented by Martin Spinelli, Senior Lecturer in the school of Media, Film and Music at the University of Sussex, and Lance Dann, Senior Lecturer in the Department of Media Studies at the University of Brighton.
