    The Matrix


    One of my favorite shows is Broad City. It stars two girls who live in New York and get into very funny situations. I wanted to do this assignment on a show because it connects more with me than a movie scene would. I screenshot 21 stills from an episode …

    ds106radio experience


    I tuned into the ds106 radio on Tuesday. It was really fun actually. I was skeptical because I really just didn’t know what to expect. We ended up listening to an hour show with a very intense plot and there were up to 8 listeners! There were guns, nightclubs, barber …

    audio = storytelling


    Every week we learn about a new form of storytelling. I feel that each one is important since they can support each other as well as work independently and still convey a narrative. One of the magical aspects of audio is that it doesn’t require a visual to create them. …

    Day in the Life of a Superhero
