Next up at #onairfest: Hos to Tell a Story With The Moth

Featuring: Sarah Austin Jenness, @katadudle, @suzannerust, & storyteller Fonzo Lacayo.

(And embedded in this thread is my treatise on the problems with Show Voice.)

(This talk is gonna be interesting for me bc I’m highly sensitive to what I call Show Voice—that thing where everyone who’s on a certain show sounds exactly the same. The Moth is all about that. There is A Way to Do It, a cadence, a rhythm, a pattern of story beats & timing.)
(Show Voice can be so comforting. It’s consistent, familiar, predictable. Podcasts w/ a strong Show Voice make great driving shows because I know what I’m gonna get. The *story* changes, but I can anticipate the shape.)

Next up at #onairfest: Today, Explained, live! With @rameswaram and @NoelKing.

(Note: quotes are quoted, non-quoted text is paraphrased, and parentheses are my commentary.)

They had a plan for Thursday’s show. Wednesday’s show was on Ukraine so they thought great, we did Ukraine Wednesday, we’ll do a show Thursday about what happened to Afghan refugees. But then Russia invaded Ukraine.

Important: @NoelKing wakes up at like 4:30am. Seems useful for someone who makes a daily news show.

"We all have imperfections deep down inside; some of us are just better at hiding it than others... this performance of niceness, I never trust. More healthy when we acknowledge that parts of ourselves. Maturity is knowing when it release that, when not to." @rgay #onairfest
Hilarious: @debbiemillman tells @rgay was "terrified" of her stature, twitter, etc before mtg her. "I never feel strong," says Gay. How I remember myself is diff from how other ppl remember me." Also, does surviving=strength? #onairfest
.@rgay: Why do I get uncomfortable to consider self strong, brave? I think we project bravery when others do things we can't. Resilience plays into strength. Strong=way in which you survive, endure. Boldly or not? Abt self-awareness, ability to acknowledge mistakes, failures.

Now it’s time for saving the sounds of Brooklyn with @vrosemarshall, @mollyfication, @zaheerali, and Taina Evans!

This panel discussion is all about archiving and oral history!

“Archiving is [@KPCC’s] The Big One of podcasts.” Day 2 host @TastyKeish 🔥
Historically, only people in power made archives. “Our project is the speak into the silence” and share voices of marginalized growth so you have a more accurate collection of voices to reconstruct the past. -@zaheerali
