Show Notes

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.

Bellwether: A Podcast of Speculative Journalism (ft. Sam Greenspan)

All podcasts, regardless of their format, are a creative endeavor. But some podcasts are just more complex. Enter, Bellwether, the latest offering from award winning podcast and radio producer, Sam Greenspan. Sam is the founding producer of 99 Percent Invisible and has a number of impressive credits to their name. The City from USA Today, the TED Radio Hour at NPR and Radiotopia’s Spacebridge to name a few. They’ve also lectured and taught radio and podcasting around the world. In November of 2021, Sam was hired as a Senior Producer at Vice Audio. So when Bellwether was released, the podcasting world took notice. Bellwether was a five year effort from one of the most brilliant minds in podcasting. This five episode narrative weaves together both real world reporting (stories Sam personally covered) and a fictitious Sci-Fi story arc. Described by Sam as a “new podcast of speculative journalism” Bellwether examines what the world is through the lens of what it might become.

Creative Hotline: Hidden Elements of a Call-In Show (ft. Allen Gannett)

When marketing experts and buddies Allen Gannett and Shane Snow decided to do a show together, they looked out over the podcast landscape and saw a wasteland of sameness – sooo many interview shows with business leaders and authors about how they achieved success. So after some research, they decided to serve their market in a different way: they made Creative Hotline, a call-in advice show about creativity. In this episode of 3 Clips, Jay talks with co-host Allen Gannett about the big and small decisions that go into making this unique show, from pitching to a network to writing a Drake trivia quiz. Plus: relatability, playing character, “performer voice,” and more.  EXPLORE THE SHOW Visit http://3clipspodcast.com for all episodes of the show.  LEARN MORE ABOUT JAY Subscribe to his newsletter, explore his course for podcasters, or watch and listen to all of Jay’s shows and projects at http://jayacunzo.com  LEARN MORE ABOUT CASTOS 3 Clips is a Castos Original Series.

Unread: Digital Breadcrumbs (ft. Chris Stedman)

One December evening in 2019, Chris Stedman noticed a new message in his inbox from his friend Alex, sent at exactly 7 p.m. He and Alex hadn’t talked in a while—was Alex writing to tell him off for being a bad friend? But it wasn’t that. “listen,” the note read. “i am writing to let you know that when you receive this scheduled email, i will no longer be alive.” Welcome to Unread, a podcast from iHeart that has landed on many best-of-2021 lists while striking a deep chord with its audience. Inside today’s episode, Jay speaks with Chris Stedman, creator and writer of Unread, a show with a unique approach toward mental health and cultural icons. Chris breaks down the process of conceptualizing an intimately personal project with a team, and how podcasting differs from the written word. Chris Stedman is a Minneapolis-based writer, speaker, and professor who currently teaches in the Department of Religion and Philosophy at Augsburg University. He is the author of IRL and Faitheist, and Unread is his first podcast.
