Re:sound #249 The Pocket Conference Show Pt. 2
Third Coast Festival

This hour we're going behind-the-scenes at two top podcasts: The Daily and 99% Invisible . Bringing Together Narrative and News [EXCERPT] presented by Lisa Tobin and Michael Barbaro of The Daily from The New York Times When the New York Times got into the podcast business in 2017, they hired producer Lisa Tobin, a public radio veteran, as executive producer. Lisa and her team went in thinking they would make one type of podcast and came out with something completely different. The form they inadvertently invented was The Daily, a twenty-minute deep dive into the news that to applies documentary story structure to traditional journalism. They must be doing something right, since The Daily shot right to the top of the podcast charts. At the 2017 Third Coast Conference, Lisa Tobin the show’s host, Michael Barbaro, discussed what they’ve learned from the first nine months of making The Daily. The Past Isn't Past [EXCERPT] presented by Delaney Hall of 99% Invisible At the 2017 Third Coast Conference, Delaney Hall shared a range of stories that trace a line from the past to the present — using deep reporting to understand the world around us. During the session, Delaney drew on her experiences as a producer and editor with 99% Invisible , as well as work from other history-centric podcasts like Uncivil , More Perfect and Scene on Radio . She also shared tips on how to frame and structure stories about the past, how to source archival material and how to bring dead characters and lost places to life in sound.

Third Coast's 2017 Audio Recap
Third Coast Festival

Before the end of a busy and exciting year for radio and podcasts, the Third Coast staff got together to recap and reflect on 2017. Johanna, Maya, Gwen, Dennis and Isabel discussed the shows and moments in the audio world from 2017 that they won't soon forget... and talked about what they look forward to hearing more of in 2018 and beyond. What we won’t forget from 2017: Johanna: How much everyone wanted to talk (debate, and reconsider, and take some more) about S-Town. Isabel: The rise of mini-series, often delving into the mind of one man (yep, mostly men), including: Missing Richard Simmons, Start Up’s series on Dov Charney, The Pope’s Long Con, Mogul: The Life & Death of Chris Lighty, Embedded’s “Trump Stories” Dennis: Podcast producers making limited series that can end, like Showcase & Heaven’s Gate. Maya: How inspiring it was — especially for public media newsrooms — when 74 Seconds won the Third Coast/RHDF Best Documentary: Gold. Gwen: This latest season of Heavyweight & the divisive set-up of Where Should We Begin? with Esther Perel. What we’re looking forward to in 2018: Gwen: MORE OF THE THINGS I LOVE!!!! Johanna: More people re-thinking the podcast form — like in CBC’s Alone: A Love Story. Maya: A nightly, live on-air radio broadcast hosted by women about urgent, topical issues, like WNYC’s “A Reckoning in Our Own House” Isabel: More great Spanish-language and bilingual podcasts! Shout out to Martina Castro’s bilingual provocation. Dennis: Pieces without clear narrative arcs — and podcasts & radio stories made overseas, but NOT in Europe.

Re:sound #248 The Twisted Xmas Show
Third Coast Festival

This hour, Third Coast’s take on the holidays. No Santa By John Biewen for Scene on Radio (2015) A father turns on a recorder while tucking in his 7-year-old, having no idea he’s about to capture a poignant growing-up moment in his son’s life. (Advisory: This episode is not suitable for some young children.) Vince Guaraldi: A Charlie Brown Christmas By Ben Manilla for Inside the National Recording Registry for Studio360 (2012) The soundtrack of the holidays is lousy with annoying songs about sleigh rides and snowmen, and beautiful old carols done up as treacly as possible. One of the saving graces this time of year is the music from A Charlie Brown Christmas, written by Vince Guaraldi. Winterval By Helen Zaltzman for The Allusionist (2016) There's a word that has become shorthand for 'the war on Christmas' with a side of 'political correctness gone mad': Winterval. Morning Program [excerpt] By Stephanie Foo for Pilot (2016) A satirical look at the way public radio often treats "exotic" holidays... applied to Christmas. Burn Slush! The Reindeer Grand Prix [excerpt] By Cathy FitzGerald for BBC World Service (2016) Producer Cathy FitzGerald travels to the snowy north of Finland to discover the sport of reindeer racing. She visits the little town of Inari, where the cappuccinos come with tiny antlers sketched in the foam and the local bar – PaPaNa (The Reindeer Dropping) – serves pizza topped with bear salami. Each year, the top 24 fastest reindeer compete here to be crowned The Reindeer King. They fly around a two-kilometre race track carved on the surface of icy Lake Inari to the cheers of hundreds of spectators. This episode of Re:sound was produced by Dennis Funk

Re:sound #247 The Meet The Composer Show
Third Coast Festival

This hour, we're diving deep into the strange, beautiful world of modern music composition. The Producer By Alex Overington for WXQR's Meet the Composer (2017) Staff paper and key signatures are great for concertos and sonatas, but the composers in this story don’t think that way… in fact most of them aren’t even sure they should be called composers at all. That includes producer Alex Overington who takes us on a road trip to unravel the creative process of those who write without a score. This episode of Re:sound was produced by Dennis Funk.

Re:sound #246 The Mirrored Show
Third Coast Festival

This hour, what we see - and what we want to see - when we gaze into our reflections in the mirror. Mirrored By Cathy Fitzgerald for BBC Radio 4 / World Service (2017) Each of us cultivates an image of ourselves at certain point in our lives and, once it’s there, it’s a hard image to shake. So much of our identities are expressed through our appearance. So what happens to our self-image as we get older and our features begin to change? In this story, we hear from people between the ages of 11 to 86 years old as they reflect… on their reflections in the mirror. Only Volunteers By Rebecca Hertz for Snap Judgement (2012) When Rebecca began working for a makeover-themed reality TV show, she thought she was going to be helping women realize their dreams and become more self-confident. What actually happened over the course of the show’s production was very different from what she - or any of the show’s contestants - signed up for. The Trouble With Beauty [Excerpt] By Lea Redfern for ABC RN’s 360 Documentaries (2013) As producer Lea Redfern prepares to have her first baby girl, she confronts the issue of having to someday teach her daughter about “beauty.” In this story, Lea explores how society values beauty and whether as a parent, she’ll be able to turn some of those values around.

Re:sound #245 The Determination Show
Third Coast Festival

This hour, amateur detectives, spiritual revelations and other stories of dogged perseverance. The 27th Amendment By Matt Largey for Pop-Up Magazine and KUT Austin (2016) With everything that’s going on in politics these days, it helps to remember the power that we have as individuals to make change. Examples of this are far too few, of course. But there is one that stands out. And you’ve probably never heard it. Angie By Phoebe Judge and Lauren Spohrer for their podcast Criminal (2015) In July of 2002, Philadelphia Homicide Detective Pat Mangold was called to the scene of a gruesome murder on the Schuylkill River. When he wasn’t able to determine the victim’s identity, he expected the case to remain unsolved. But then, out of the blue, a professional soccer player inserted himself into the investigation, and became obsessed with solving the crime. Featuring a behind the scenes interview with Phoebe Judge First You Leave and Then You Go By Karen Duffin Re:sound debut, originally produced for the Transom Storytelling Workshop (2013) Karen's dad most wanted to pass on his curiosity and his faith to his seven children.

Re:sound #243 The Finally Show
Third Coast Festival

This hour, we’re sharing a few of Third Coast’s favourite stories that didn’t quite fit the mold of past episodes. Smart Old Broad By Gideon Brower and Nick White for Unfictional from KCRW (2014) Maureen "Mo" O'Neill was spending her days mostly alone. She didn't have many friends, she was getting older, and didn't know who she was. After work she could never summon up the inspiration it took to get off the couch and leave the house. But that's when she discovered the solution that opened up the world to her… competitive air guitar. The Leaves By Jaye Kranz for ‘Between The Essays’ (The Essay) for Falling Tree Productions & BBC Radio 3 (2015) Radio producer Jaye Kranz was given a line of poetry from an Adelaide Crapsey poem—"The leaves, frost crisp'd, break from the trees"—and asked to make adventurous radio with it. What followed is a leap into the therapeutic possibilities of poetry, and a tumble down the rabbit hole into a dreamlike space of memories. The Magic Skates [excerpt] By Mad Genius for [email protected] (2016) Jeanne Du Snark brings the pain for the Mad Rollin' Dolls, a roller derby league in Madison, Wisconsin. The audio collective Mad Genius recorded Jeanne's world, remixing her skates into an arena-shaking stomp. "You could get hit from anywhere. Just be ready." Six House Parties By Ross Sutherland for Imaginary Advice (2015) Ross Sutherland takes you through a creative menagerie of themed house parties. Knitter on the Bus By Kate Sweeney for Atlanta Sounds from WABE (2012) Fred Skey is an Atlanta commuter who’s found a crafty way to pass the time as he takes MARTA to and from work: knitting. He says that the act of knitting feels like a meditation; when he focuses on his stitches during his long commute, the stress from the workday melts away.

Re:sound #241 The Smash The Binary Show
Third Coast Festival

This hour, stories that grab hold of our expectations and smash the binary. My Name Is Shawn and I Prefer He by Judy Campbell & Amy Standed for The Leap from KQED (2015) Shawn Demmons is a 50-year-old man now, but when he was growing up, he was Shawna Demmons. Lately we’ve heard a lot of stories about people who, after years in the closet, found the courage to come out as transgender. But for Shawn, courage was never the problem. His leap was a four decade journey to realize he was a man. And then he had to decide just what kind of man he wanted to be. Twirl by Kaitlin Prest for The Heart (2017) Todd once loved a woman. And she loved him back, but there was one thing that she just couldn’t get over, he twirls. This piece explores what it means to be effeminate when you’re a straight cis-dude. Kaitlin talks to men who embrace and resist their femininity. This story is from a 4-part series called 'pansy'. The Accidental Gay Parents [radio excerpt listen here for the full story] by Hillary Frank for The Longest Shortest Time (2015) In this story, gender is just a small piece of a complicated situation our protagonists find themselves in. Theirs is a tale that turns assumptions upside down: it’s a passionate love story, a tense legal drama, and a complicated family affair, that starts when boy meets boy.

Re:sound #240 The Aftermath Show
Third Coast Festival

This hour two stories about what remains after the fighting stops. Guilty Landscape By Anik See for Earth Beat from Radio Netherlands Worldwide (2012) World War I started nearly one hundred years ago. As far as wars go, it was epic – ten million soldiers died in just four years. Over two million of them alone died on the Western Front near Ypres, and the landscape of Flanders was completely devastated. Not a living tree or blade of grass survived. But are the marks of war still visible? What’s it like there now? To find out, Anik went there with her young son. Saigon, 1965 By Malcolm Gladwell, Mia Lobel, Roxanne Scott and Jacob Smith Revisionist History (2016) In the early 1960s the Pentagon set up a top-secret research project in an old villa in downtown Saigon. The task? To interview captured North Vietnamese soldiers and guerrillas in order to measure the effect of relentless U.S. bombing on their morale. Yet despite a wealth of great data, even the leaders of the study couldn’t agree on what it meant. This episode or Re:sound was produced by Dennis Funk.
