Strange & Charmed presents: Audio in Wonderland

Location Festival Hub - Studio, Date Event has passed

There’s a lot of ‘radio-splaining’ in broadcasting and podcasting… always checking that the listener is keeping up. It has become the dominant mode for storytellers, but it doesn’t leave much room for other ways of experiencing the world that are less analytical and more intuitive and instinctive. It doesn’t leave much room for wonder. As founder and caretaker of Strange & Charmed, a school for audio storytellers, Cathy FitzGerald wants to inspire makers to play and take risks. She asks what a more wonder-full type of audio might sound like – and what effect it might have on listeners.
