A Simple Herstory: Audio as Theater (ft. Jocelyn Kuritsky)

Here’s a common story. The 2020 pandemic come along and it seriously altered someone’s plans. Here’s a less common story. A theater actor and producer can’t put on live shows any longer so she teams up with a playwright to create a one of a kind podcast experience. Well, that’s exactly what Jocelyn Kuritsky did. The result? A Simple Herstory A Simple Herstory is described as a “a theatrical and high concept podcast series about the women who have run for President of the United States.” And it is quite theatrical indeed. 23 different actors (all women, by the way) connected via clean feed to create this comedy infused piece of audio drama based on real events. Jocelyn produced the podcast through her company, The Muse Project and for this episode of 3 Clips, she joined Evo to discuss what it’s like to bring in an existing creative skillset into a different medium.

Bonus Episode: Interview Techniques, Dissected (ft. Kristen LaFrance, Shopify)

For this special episode, we narrow down on a foundation skill for podcasters: interviewing. Jay brings back guest Kristen LaFrance, who was featured on 3 Clips December 2020 to break the interview show she hosts and creates for Spopify, Resilient Retail. We love how much passion Kristen has for studying the art of interviewing as she looks to continually improve her own skills, so we asked her back to share her insights. Jay and Kristen each share three clips from interviewers they admire and break them down (so, uh, welcome to the first episode of 6 Clips? Haha, we kid!). They discuss creating a good interview tone or environment, the importance of doing research, the necessity of follow-up questions, respectfully creating tension with your guest, asking the questions your listener would ask, and so much more!
