Alumni Insights: Telling Your Story with Sound

  • 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
  • Online via Zoom

A podcast can be more than a monologue or an interview; it can be a rich environment for using sound to tell your story. One can use sound in many ways, whether it's to set the scene, illustrate a concept, or enliven a journalistic endeavor.

Our next #DuqAlumniInsights will take the audience on an international aural journey from the 'hollars' of Kentucky to the streets of Grenada in search of sounds. With Jim Anderson's (M'73) deep background in broadcasting, he will demonstrate the power of sound to illustrate and enrich a podcast. Jim is a multi Grammy award winner and the 2018 recipient of the Duquesne University Mary Pappert School of Music's Alumni Achievement Award.

During this one-hour session, moderated by Thomas Kikta, Chair of the Commercial Music, Media, and Jazz Department in the Mary Pappert School of Music, participants will have the opportunity to ask questions as time permits.
