Focusing on freelancing with SPJ's Internet radio show/podcast

Freelancing will be the hot topic tomorrow when "Your SPJ Membership," SPJ's live Internet radio show, hits the airwaves again. The episode airs live at 1 p.m. Eastern/noon Central, but if you can't tune in then, you can catch up later by listening to it as a podcast, either on or via iTunes -- you can listen through your browser or download the audio to your iPod.
