Ella & Gwendolyn

For my final assignment, I chose to start working on building my story for the radio show with the Story Fun Time! Assignment (3.5 stars). I was first thinking about using a conversation for the story, but then I remembered that my characters are Irish and my Irish accent is …

Alternate History: World War III

For the first 3.5 stars out of the 12 needed for our Audio Assignments, I completed the storytime audio assignment. This had to tie back into our alternate history choice in some way, shape, or form. For my alternative history, I decided to take a look at what …

The Outcome of an Alternative History: The South Wins

Dear Friends: Storytime Fun


The last required assignment for the third week was Story Time Fun a 3 1/2 star assignment, which was linked to our previous Alternative History assignment. Last week I had to actually change my assignment (giving me more work to do) because I noticed that I couldn’t do much …

Time Interview with Michael Jackson

MIchael wasn’t really known for doing interviews. In fact, I think he went fourteen years in between them, only coming out of hiding when Oprah came calling. So I thought to myself, I wonder what it would be like if I could interview him but in the FUTURE.

Elvis has Not left the builiding 2.0

Tensions Flare at Home

Story Time!

Telling a story using audio could not possibly be hard, right? Well, while literally telling a story into a mic has inherent simplicities, making an audio story for the story-time assignment had challenges. Mixing the audio of the different tracks required much listening and re-listening to get the …

Sounds of an Alternate History

For this assignment I wanted to create a normal day in the life of the uncolonized American. I wanted to see what the world would be like if Europe never colonized the rest of the world.

I  did some research about what the Iroquois ate and enjoyed in order …

A Winters’ Tale

Honestly this story is creepy …
