Democracy Works: Bridging Academia and a General Audience (ft. Jenna Spinelle)

This episode features Jenna Spinelle, co-host and lead interviewer for the show Democracy Works. Produced by the McCourtney Institute for Democracy at Penn State and WPSU Penn State, this show seeks to answer questions about what it means to live in a democracy: they get into the structure and history behind this foundational framework.  Jenna shares her experiences and insights into bringing dense academic materials and conversations to life for an audience that includes academics and nonacademics alike. Her co-hosts are academics as are many of her guests. Her role, as she sees it, is largely about being a bridge builder between the academy and the general public. Along the way, she helps others cross this divide as well.  This is an excellent episode for any creative who aims to bring complicated ideas to a wider audience.  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.

Camp Monsters: Audio as a Visual Medium (ft. Weston Davis)

Audio as a Visual Medium is a paradox in many ways. But when done well, writing for the ear, editing and sound design can create a visual world through audio. Camp Monsters from REI…yes the brand, is a perfect example of this. Written, hosted and narrated Weston Davis, Camp Monsters features as they put it “stories of impossible encounters with impossible creatures in the wildest corners of North America.” Along with producer Chelsea Davis and sound designer Nick Patri, REI has created a branded podcast that doesn’t feel like a branded podcast. It feels more like an old fashioned radio drama reimagined.
