Here are a few ideas for the radio show assignment! I’m not really tied down to anything, so this is not a comprehensive list. I’m excited to work with some of you to create the “our” portion of Y(our) story!
1. A movie/show/whatever review
I love talking with my friends about something we’ve all watched and looking at it on a deeper level or just talking about what we liked or didn’t like about it. I also listen to a few podcasts around listening to others review things I like, here are some examples:
A More Civilized Age – A Clone Wars Podcast (Of course I had to include something Star Wars related)
Emojidrome (This podcast reviews different emojis and rates which emoji looks the best on which platform)
2. Talking about how our semester went/how it’s like going to school during a pandemic
This one is a simple way of incorporating our story and talk about something we’re all experiencing at the same time. I actually did a small podcast on this topic for my Journalism class last semester if you’re interested! I interviewed my friends to see how they were dealing with our new normal.
3. Some kind of narrative story
This idea is inspired by the Moon Graffiti and the I Saw Myself Running audio dramas we listen to this week. I really enjoy Narrative podcasts and audio dramas, so I think this could be a fun idea. I’m not an actor so I don’t know if I would be any good at actually saying the lines, but I’ve found I really like editing audio and adding effects and music to things so that could be something I could contribute to this kind of radio show!
If you’re interested, here are a few other audio dramas I’ve listened to:
4. Talking about stories that mean something to us
This is inspired by the assignment we did analyzing stories that meant something to us. I had a lot of fun writing my post and reading everyone else’s, so I think it would be cool to talk about other stories and see what connections we can make between them.
5. An advice show
I used to listen to a podcast called My Brother, My Brother, and Me where three brothers would give advice to listeners as well as answer questions off Yahoo! Answers. I think it would be interesting if we answer questions and give advice to others in the class who write in their problems. This could be funny or serious.
