Episode #61: Serial and the Possibilities of Podcasting
This week on 3620, we have the privilege of sharing a work in progress. Veteran producers and former 3620 hosts Kevin Gotkin and Corrina Laughlin join with new producer Mariam Durrani to have a conversation about the podcast phenomenon known as Serial. But really this episode is about everything that we’re trying to do here at 3620: it’s about sound scholarship, the blurred lines between knowledge production and entertainment in the digital age, affect, voice, and the types of work that new media formats can and cannot accomplish. What you’ll hear is a draft of an audio essay that Kevin, Corrina, and Mariam will be publishing along with a special issue of the journal American Anthropologist, which is truly an incredible feat. Take a listen, I think you’re gonna like it.
