Forever is a Long Time: Creating with Sensitivity (ft. Ian Coss)

The World needs more sensitive creators. Content that moves the world, moves listeners and make things better. And you know what? That doesn’t have to come in the form of some epic narrative. It can be stories from daily life. The seemingly innocuous details of our day-to-day can provide inspiration. Enter Ian Coss. For this episode he and Jay break down his five part series, Forever is a Long Time. Ian explores the topic of marriage by interviewing members of his family who are divorced, which is most of them. These candid and poignant conversation with his relatives are both deeply personal and relatable at the same time. Ian is an award winning musician, podcaster and sound designer who has worked with well known outlets like PRX, and the nationally syndicated radio show, The World. He’s been recognized with a national Edward R. Murrow Award for excellence in sound and his music is even featured in museums. Forever is a Long Time, however, was produced independently, something he and Jay discuss at length.

REPLAY: Discovery's Curiosity Daily: How to Consistently Delight Listeners (ft. Ashley Hamer and Cody Gough)

We’re hard at work on new episodes of 3 Clips, so here’s an oldie but a goodie — one of our most popular episodes… We’ve got a dynamic co-hosting duo: welcome Ashley Hamer and Cody Gough of Curiosity Daily. A daily, yes, daily (!), podcast about science, which is part of Discovery. Host Jay Acunzo gets into great topics with Cody and Ashley, starting with, how, just how do they put out a well researched and fact-checked show every single day? This episode also covers topics of performing on the mic, how these two make a co-hosting relationship work, how to communicate science to a general audience, and more.  And to that last topic, being a science communicator to a wide audience, Ashley had a great thought to add after we recorded, so hang out past all the credits and even past the closing theme music to hear what she had to say. It’s worth it!

Making a Living in Podcasting (ft. Kinsey Grant and Josh Kaplan of Thinking is Cool)

3 Clips is a show about the craft of podcasting, and the passion behind that craft. But how do we translate that passion into income? On this special episode, business partners Kinsey Grant and Josh Kaplan help us answer this question. Kinsey is the host of Thinking is Cool, where she takes listeners deep into the key topics affecting their work and lives, to encourage us all to stop and think more critically about the nuances inside those ideas. She covers topics like drugs and why we do them, billionaires and whether they should exist, the concept of the girl boss, and the political system in the US and how we might fix it. Kinsey is also the Chief Content Officer of the startup that she co-founded, Smooth Operations and Creator Services, aka Smooth Ops. Josh Kaplan is the co-founder of Thinking is Cool and co-founder and CEO of Smooth Ops. He runs the business back end for Thinking is Cool, and works on revenue generating projects for independent creators, many of whom are podcasters too.

Wireframe: Fonts as People (ft. Khoi Vinh and Dominic Girard)

When’s the last time you attended an audio-only house party populated entirely by personified versions of fonts? Actual typefaces like Arial and Times New Roman speaking at you like real life people? Imagine how obnoxious Comic Sans sounds… Welcome to the ambitious world of Wireframe, a podcast from Adobe and Pacific Content. Inside today’s episode, Jay speaks with Khoi Vinh and Dominic Girard, two of the three hosts of Wireframe, a show with a unique eye toward helping design professionals and the design-curious, fostering a new appreciation for the craft while demonstrating how design impacts the world around you. Khoi and Dominic breakdown the nitty-gritty with Jay, ranging from logistics between hosts and the brandteam, what it means to be a podcast host versus a public speaker, and tricks for transforming show guests into actors. Wireframe is not a show that’s afraid to reach. Khoi Vinh, named one of the most creative people in business by Fast Company, is Senior Director of Product Design at Adobe. His co-host Dominic Girard is a showrunner from Pacific Content, a podcast production company which helps make Wireframe as well as shows from some of the world’s top brands like Dell, Charles Schwab, Atlassean, and Facebook.

Flash Forward: Ethically Mixing Fact and Fiction (ft. Rose Eveleth)

In 2021, we’re blessed to live in a podcast landscape ripe with richly reported nonfiction shows that challenge your way of thinking and expand your world: Reply All, Invisibilia, Far Flung, the list goes on. There is also an expanding slate of fictional podcasts to get lost in. But what if you could have both in one show?  With Flash Forward, a show about the future, our guest Rose Eveleth inspires imaginations and pushes listeners to think about the world we live in now, and how it could be different. Like other science shows, Rose calls on scientists and other experts to break down complex concepts in an accessible way. But sprinkled throughout each episode are speculative fiction scenes that offer a glimpse of “possible and not so possible futures.”  In this episode of 3 Clips, Rose and Jay break down a Flash Forward episode about humans’ search for alien life. They discuss how to make scientists sound podcast-worthy, how Rose has carved out her own voice in the science genre, and her fiction writing process. Also, Rose offers insights on how she’s managed to make such a multilayered show as an independent producer.  EXPLORE THE SHOW 3clipspodcast.com for all episodes of the show.  LEARN MORE ABOUT 3 CLIPS HOST JAY ACUNZO Subscribe to his newsletter, explore his course for podcasters, or watch and listen to all of Jay’s shows and projects at jayacunzo.com  LEARN MORE ABOUT CASTOS 3 Clips is a Castos Original Series.

Drilled: Rigorous Audio Journalism (ft. Amy Westervelt)

Amy Westervelt is a print and audio journalist and environmentalist; she founded the podcast network Critical Frequency, which raises up important but often overlooked voices; and she is the executive producer and host of the critically acclaimed show Drilled. The through line here is that Amy has an enduring interest in telling stories that are getting covered up, and doing the hard work of figuring out what’s really going on. Jay and Amy discuss the rigorous and thorough process involved in creating a show like Drilled, which focuses on stories that investigate propaganda in the fossil fuel industry. And they get into why audio is a powerful medium for the stories Amy chooses to cover on the podcast.
