Last week, I was in middle of KCRW's Radio Race, a 24-hour audio production content very similar to The 48 Hour Film Project.
The task: Make a non-fiction radio story of 4-minutes or less within 24 hours.
This week, I'm sharing my experience with you.
I hope this episode is helpful to those who are curious about getting into narrative non-fiction podcasting as well as podcasters interested in getting better guests and telling better stories on their current podcasts.
