I’ve grown up my entire life watching tv. Once I was four or five, I could sit in front of one of those giant (or actually pretty small) boxes and just watch hours and hours of whatever crap was on. But even though I’ve grown up on tv, I think there’s something really cool and captivating about radio.
NPR has this cool podcast called Radiolab, and basically each month they pick a different “sciencey” topic and do a whole show about it. But it’s never some super long complex monologue about intricate processes, and the topics they chose are things that most people would probably find semi relevant/interesting. Most of them have something to do with brains or why people act a certain way, but instead of just droning on and on about neurochemical processes (which I would be totally cool with, but maybe not everyone would enjoy), the podcasts consist of individual stories that are somehow related to the overall topic. They’re usually really cool explorations that don’t necessarily answer a direct question, but instead get you to think.
I can picture a podcast similar to Radiolab as a great format for my repurposing/remediation project. The way I wrote it, there are a few different stories involved, and they all come together as different instance of musical collaboration and connection. I have zero experience with recording (or editing, for that matter) so I doubt I’m actually capable of putting together a podcast as cool as this one, but I would really like to try making a podcast!
If any of you have any experience with recording/editing at all, I’ll definitely need tips 🙂
