I enjoy reading graphic novels so I definitely liked reading this radio guide; I kind of wish all my text books where like this guide. I actually have a social psychology book that uses comics every now and then to explain a point. Anyways, one of my favorite parts was when Ira talked about how to interview someone. I think that’s probably one of the hardest things to do; at least for me if I was in that situation. I know sometimes on reality shows they will have people run an interview like in American Next Top Model, which I used to watch. But the example with Jackie and Ira was really a good way to explain things. For example, when Jackie said “we were shot at” and Ira knew this wasn’t really good for the radio because its so general and he prompted her and asked, “where were you standing when it happened?” was a really cool way to make it more dramatic. You want the listener to have a feeling that they where there when it happened because in a way that’s what story telling is all about. I really like listening to the radio but more live radio with music and I don’t know if I have the patience to do a story piece like on NPR because, you know, you have 12 hours of tape and you have to cut it down to 15 minutes. I feel like I would have a problem getting 12 hours worth of stuff in 12 minutes but it’s obviously done very well sometimes, which I’m sure comes with practice. Overall, a fun read and very interesting.
