Narrative Podcast Series
In addition to my coursework, I have utilized my various professional writing skills in several extracurricular applications and settings. One of these applications is in the podcast I produce titled "Disasters from History." Disasters from History is a narrative-style podcast series in which I tell the stories of disasters that have occurred in recorded history, focusing on the untold stories, the lesser-known details, and invoking discourse on the historical significance of each disastrous event. This creative pursuit began when I learned principles of audio recording and production from my PSA assignments I completed in Dr. Archibald's course "Community Writing I."
Since I have started this podcast, I have received great praise and feedback from my peers and the public for my ability to tell the interesting stories of disasters in a captivating narrative form. In addition, I have been also applauded on the many facets of my production quality, including sound quality and mixing. I feel this podcast demonstrates my understanding of good rhetorical practices in appealing to an audience, as well as my knowledge of proper sound recording principles.
All episodes of the podcast can be found here.
