Fab Lab director, Jim Correll, has been writing a weekly column for the Independence Daily Reporter since April of 2016. In the column, he covers subjects ranging from Fab Lab ICC to entrepreneurship as well as the need to change our education system in the United States. In 2019, Jim launched the Correll Files podcast, a combination of interviews with entrepreneurs and audio versions of the newspaper articles. The pandemic of 2020 greatly reduced opportunities for new interviews but toward the end of the year, interviews were resumed. (Podcast links point to Stitcher, but are available wherever you get your podcasts.)
