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.

Storybound: Going Against the Norm (ft. Jude Brewer)

Radio theatre is defined as a dramatized performance — no visual, only dialogue and sounds to manifest images in the listeners’ minds, resulting in a uniquely psychological experience. This mode of storytelling began in the 1920s, flourishing by the 1940s, then evolving in the 21st century in the form of podcasts. And while Jude Brewer’s podcast Storybound falls into the category of radio theatre, it doesn’t quite sound like the rest of them. Inside today’s episode, Jay and Jude discuss the collaboration between voice and music. Over the past four seasons, Storybound listeners have been treated to their favorite authors reading some of their most powerful writing, designed with immersive sound environments and experimental cross-genre music compositions handcrafted and arranged by creator and host Jude Brewer. Jude is a writer, actor, and musician. He’s also the editor and sound designer for his own show Storybound. Most recently, Jude won First Place in the KCRW Radio Race, for which his piece “BUZZY” received critical acclaim. His weekly newsletter, How Long Must I Belong To This? is currently being developed into a show.
