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.)

1/
(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.)
2/
(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 🔥
2/
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
