We recount some of our favorite Radio Film School stories during these first six months of the podcast. Plus, a big announcement.
Today we’re excited to announce that Radio Film School is now part of the Podcastica network. Think of it as a sort of indie label of 8 (or rather, now, 9) podcasts. To acquaint our new family of Podcastica listeners with the show, and to celebrate the 6-month mark into the season, today we start a 2 part “Best of…” series. In part 1 we’ll cover some of my favorite personal stories told on the show; from father figures to first loves. This episode also includes the moving story of why spoken word artist Marshall Davis Jones changed his famous “Spelling Father” spoken word performance to no longer refer to his dad as a deadbeat. (Powerful stuff! That story alone is worth the price of admission.)
In part 2, we’ll share some of my favorite guest stories and conversations.
Even if you’ve been an avid listener, I am confident you’ll enjoy this trip down memory lane as I’ll also offer some additional insight into the episodes I highlight. And in today’s bonus segment, I finally give the definition of the term “Short Ends” and why I chose that name for the interim episodes.
