Storytelling With The Kitchen Sisters

UCD College of Architecture and Planning

The story of food is ingrained in all of us. It’s bubbling around the dining table and steaming in the kitchen. How do we craft those stories into effective and emotional multimedia pieces for the ears of strangers?

This session, led by The Kitchen Sisters producer Davia Nelson, covers how to prepare and conduct interviews for produced radio segments and find your voice as a host. We’ll dive into interview and miking techniques, how to make interviewees comfortable and frame evocative questions, sound gathering, archival audio, field recording, equipment, how to build a story, and how to listen (harder than it looks!).

This session is designed for those who want to acquire and hone their skills for podcasts, radio and documentaries. It’s customized to fit the projects you are working on. People who have attended in the past have come from radio, film, multimedia, detective agencies, newspapers, journalism, photography, oral history, historical societies, farms, music, ophthalmology, writing, libraries, archives, beer brewing, web design, restaurants, health care organizations, film, cheese-making and beyond. In other words, you are welcome!
