Show Notes

In this episode, Jay and Cherie get into it with seven questions from you! They talk about everything from the key role of premise development (you knew we’d go there!), to why slack in your production process is really helpful, to the benefits of hosts playing the role of explorer rather than expert, and more.

Do you have a question for Jay? Please post it on his Twitter feed: he’s @JayAcunzo. He’ll definitely answer you there, and we may feature your question in a future Listener Mailbag episode. You can expect them about every other month. Thank you!

Nice Try!: With Breadth Comes Depth (ft. Avery Trufelman.)

For connoisseurs of podcasts Avery Trufelman shouldn’t need much of an introduction. She’s worked on popular shows like 99% Invisible and it’s successful spinoff, Articles of Interest. More recently she teamed up with Vox and Curbed to create Nice Try! In season one of this investigative series, Avery explored failed attempts at creating Utopias. For season two titled Interior she turned her attention to the home. Each episode dissects the history and the stories of household appliances and the role they play in our attempt to turn our homes into our own little fiefdoms. She joined Evo to discuss the making of Season 2 Episode 1 titled The Doorbell. Sow how does someone make an entire episode about a doorbell? Well, with breadth comes depth.

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.
