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.

Everyone Hates Marketers: Repurposing Your Best Work (ft. Louis Grenier)

Everyone Hates Marketers: Repurposing Your Best Work (ft. Louis Grenier)

SHOW NOTES: Louis Grenier is a marketing consultant whose stated mission is to “fight marketing bullshit,” which he does with his company Everyone Hates Marketers, and a podcast by the same name. After three years and 200 interview-style podcast episodes, Louis realized he was forgetting who his guests were even five episodes ago. So in March 2021, he decided to refresh himself, and his show.  New episodes are shorter, in monologue format, and focus around one marketing lesson, rather than on a guest. In these episodes, Grenier re-packages clips from his past interview episodes and cites examples from books and other sources. It really works for the listener, even if you never heard the original interviews. And it’s working for Louis, as a way to showcase his own marketing know-how. Among other topics, Louis and Jay discuss developing a personal brand and host persona, and how to make your podcast stand out in a crowded field.  EXPLORE THE SHOW Visit 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.

Appearances: When Fiction Gets Personal (ft. Sharon Mashihi)

Audio performer, artist, and storyteller Sharon Mashihi discusses her acclaimed 2020 limited series podcast Appearances. This beautifully crafted show blurs the lines between fact and fiction. It follows the story of an Iranian American woman who’s approaching middle age and delving into big life questions about family, relationships, and motherhood. Jay and Sharon discuss how she crafted this complex and very personal 9-part series over the course of a year. And they touch on how Sharon is still processing the aftermath of creating a show that mined emotional and creative depths.

Deviate: Creative Cross-Training (ft. Rolf Potts)

Deviate: Creative Cross-Training (ft. Rolf Potts)

Travel writer Rolf Potts’ podcast, Deviate, is usually an interview show with other writers, travelers and filmmakers reflecting on their experiences and sometimes waxing philosophical. Usually, because, true to its name, some episodes of Deviate stray from both topic and format. Alternative formats have included narrative, essay, chatcast, and the one we feature here: an episode about a 20+ mile walk, with all audio recorded while on that walk.  Jay and Rolf discuss the value in exercising different creative muscles, even if it costs you some downloads. Also, the art of capturing a story in the moment without much pre-planned structure, the magic dust of chemistry between people on a podcast, and how Rolf has stayed true to his show’s premise, even when he deviates from the topic of travel.  EXPLORE THE SHOW Visit 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.
