How To Make Great Radio: An Illustrated Guide Starring Ira Glass | Brain Pickings

How To Make Great Radio: An Illustrated Guide Starring Ira Glass | Brain Pickings | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

By Maria Popova

 

"When correctly harnessed, radio can be as emotional, as funny and as satisfying as the best motion pictures."

 

"In 1999, the staff of This American Life invited cartoonist Jessica Abel to spend several weeks with them. The result was Radio: An Illustrated Guide (public library), in which Abel peeks inside the hood of the beloved radio show to reveal what makes it hum and teach us how “to lift Radio to its true potential” — a fine addition to other echelons of comics as nonfiction, most similar in ethos and sensibility to fellow public radio maven Brooke Gladstone’s The Influencing Machine."

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

We all have the power of the podcast.  Make a podcast and you get just a taste of what it takes to make a radio show.  I admire Ira Glass and his work on this American Life.( I subscribe to the podcast.)

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Here's a simple way to create some eye catching graphics.  Taks a bit to get the size of the photo and the size of the bubble to actually work.

This would be enthusiastically received by students, know doubt, who could then extend their visual literacy as well.
