Show Notes

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.

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.

Bonus Episode: 10% Happier's Show Development Process (ft. Jen Poyant and Nate Tobey)

What do folks from public radio learn about show development that the rest of us don't understand? How do some of the top shows in the world START? What techniques, processes, or mental heuristics do professional showrunners use to ensure that they're developing strong show premises and IP -- not just "yet another" podcast about the same topics as their competitors?Today, we go inside a live call from our latest podcast workshops, and we hear from Nate Tobey and Jen Poyant.Nate Tobey (formerly of APMG and WGBH) is the director of content at 10% Happier, and Jen Poyant (former WNYC producer and co-founder of Stable Genius Productions) is their Executive Producer.10% Happier is a mindfulness and meditation tech company, co-founded by ABC News and Good Morning America anchor Dan Harris, and on the back of Harris's very popular podcast (also called 10% Happier), the company decided to create a slate of shows.On the call, Jay interviews Nate and Jen, with students chiming in near the end.Interested in our workshops?
