As hinted to in my previous post, I am definitely wanting to go for a more monologue sound. This is a bit different than what I am seeing out there, and it is definitely different than the conversational style of sound I had when I had a radio show in undergrad (you know in the early 90s) with a friend of mine. However, I did end up doing solo shows towards the end and it felt like it was a place for me.
I think a monologue type podcast will fit what I have in mind because the topic that I want to discuss (accessibility) seems to be the kind of topic where folk are always asking “just give me a checklist” and I want to get them out of this need for checklists by highlighting accessibility through relationship building with my listeners (you know maybe Brenna and my mom). I may have interviews or conversations later, but to start I think having a podcast would be the next step of the “alt-text” Ann brand I seem to have on Twitter. Plus people need this info to make their spaces more accessible and I want to make getting that info more accessible.
Because I want to keep it under 20 minutes I have been thinking about if there is space for segments besides intro and outro. I am still thinking on this a lot and I am open to any suggestions for something that I could have as a segment besides what I am thinking which is “Accessibility Fail of the Week” (I won’t do that, but gosh do I want to).
In terms of adjectives I am going for: informational, funny, motivating, ethical, and communal
Did I go to that link you gave and type in the word accessible and found something great? Yes, yes I did. I am still debating because I need to reflect on creative license and what I want to do with this podcast.
I do not want sound effects, because honestly there is no real way to make sound effects accessible. That being said, I do appreciate Buffering the Vampire Slayer forever for their Detective Angel, The Patriarchy, and Hell Math jingles because I end up singing them in ridiculous life situations.
