Podcast

My podcast assignment has similar themes to my feature story because it focuses on the idea of colony collapse disorder and how human management choices affect pollinator populations. However, I condensed the article into a podcast and converted it into broadcast style, which has shorter sentences, rounded-off numerals, attributions before declarative sentences and many other characteristics which differ from news and feature writing journalism styles. I also worked with recording devices and Audacity sound-editing softwares, and I learned about on and off-record interviews. When choosing the natural sound of a coffeemaker to incorporate into the podcast, I looked for an ambient sound that was relatable to my audience and would catch the attention of my listeners in an unusual way. Enjoy the podcast!
