2. Listen to a couple episodes from one of the podcasts below:

3. Post link to Microblog (about 100 words) about how you might create your own podcast to Blackboard.
*NOTE* Feel free to post this short, informal blog in the form of audio or video if you wish!

Microblog prompt: Bryan Alexander writes that “Podcast narratives are an important form for storytellers to consider” (89). After listening to a couple podcasts, consider how you might create your own podcast. Would it be fiction or nonfiction (or a mix)? What would your podcast be about? Would your possible podcast be closer to the oral storytelling tradition (single speaker) or the radio drama (multiple speakers/characters, music, and sound effects).

4. Respond to two blogs (either on Blackboard or their blog comments)

5. Listen to the following podcast, an interview with Nerdia about the creative process!

And, as I mention at the end of that podcast, here is the link to the resources for practicing different types of storytelling tools assignments.ds106.us.

Podcasts are to radio as Netflix is to cable
