True Stories on Radio
Hearing is one of the first human senses to develop, and sound is the oldest method of human communication. Itâ€™s one way people tell stories, and itâ€™s the only way the radio can tell stories. While radio often functions as a source of news, it also is a method of maintaining connection – describing Â human experiences through sound.
Today, we talk more about telling stories through radio, using journalistic forms, narratives, and even radio art- with John Biewen, co-editor of “Reality Radio: Telling True Stories in Sound.” Also joining us will be This American Life Contributor and Senior Producer of â€œThe Story,â€ a national radio show, Katie Davis- to speak more on telling stories through narrative methods.
