Jeanne’s Podcast Pick of the Week

Jeanne’s Podcast Pick is a weekly First Person Arts blog post that lets Jeanne, the Marketing Intern, share with you a recent story that has sparked her interest from the World Wide Interwebs. Please feel free to comment if you are moved to do so!

When searching for a film on Netflix, I filter my options by applying the phrase Visually-Striking. I love the use of fantastic images to tell a story. Whether it is the sets, the costumes, the cinematography, or the lighting; the more strikingly beautiful or interesting the better!
Visuals are an instant way to establish the tone of a story without saying a word. However, audio based story-telling like radio relies solely on words and sounds to spark the imagination of listeners. Because of the limitations surrounding this medium, when an artist is able to inspire vivid imagery it can be quite powerful.

The Truth is a podcast program dedicated to producing these “short films without pictures.” It is written and produced by a group of creative people who enjoy experimenting with sound design in story-telling. They record on location and the end result is similar to experiencing a short film with your eyes closed!
The most recent episode of The Truth is about a strange cab ride that results in a lesson learned about communication and is my Pick of the Week!
