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.

  • Podcast editing tricks from a standup comic

  • What many NPR-style shows get wrong (in my opinion – don't hate me!)
  • Lessons from hosting hundreds of radio interviews
  • A 5'7" fashion model who is "Big in Japan" – REALLY!
