My non-textual piece will be a podcast written, hosted, and produced by myself in the school’s new podcast studio. I currently host and help produce the school’s new up and coming podcast, “Your Cool Thing,” alongside Daniel Lynds.
Working on this project was an amazing opportunity for me. I’ve always been interested in the concept of storytelling and the power of words. My goal now is to be able to start and host my own show. The podcast will explore a myriad of social identities- race, sexual orientation, gender, citizenship, politics, etc.- and in the end, the goal is to see the connections between various persons that may not be obvious upon first glance.
The interviews I conducted for YCT showed me that there’s always more to people than what meets the eyes. I hope to bring that same trend over onto my platform.
