Show Notes

In our special holiday bonus episode, Jay is joined by 3 Clips producers Cherie Turner and Andrea Muraskin, where they each gift one memorable clip from a show they love to the group -- then dissect it together.

The group talks about developing and capturing strong characters when you create nonfiction shows ... playing with form and taking risks with what a podcast should actually sound like ... and how to end episodes strong ... and more!


Every week in Playing Favorites, Jay Acunzo shares a new idea or story exclusive to subscribers about making things that make a difference. Our one goal is to make the audience’s favorite things -- so what does that take, anyway?
