Documentary Trolls Meeting

Radio board

Real talk though: do this. It’s going to be awesome, and Becca Seidel ’15 knows what’s up:

If you love This American Life, Radiolab, or any other programs that tell incredible stories through sound, then listen up: the trolls are emerging once again. And by that, I’m not referring to the mythological cave-dwellers, those creepy dolls with the fuzzy hair, or the ACB.

Tomorrow (Friday) at 5PM will be this year’s first meeting of the Documentary Trolls, a radio storytelling collective that began taking shape at Wesleyan last year. The purpose of the group will be to provide a collaborative space in which to create and share audio stories. We will be listening to excerpts from memorable/weird/generally cool radio stories and podcast episodes that have come out in the past few years, and we’ll use those as a starting point to discuss techniques for interviews, narration, sound design, and the use of music in radio storytelling.

Last year, the Trolls came out with a pretty sweet final product: a set of stories that aired on WESU towards the beginning of the summer. We might try to do that again, but we also might just listen to a lot of great radio stories and talk about them. Either way, it’s gonna be super low-key. No experience necessary!

All Diversity/Identity Groups Priorities Meeting


From Dwight Greene Intern Kate “Salty” Cullen ’16:

Are you involved in any sort of diversity or identity group on campus? Then yes, this event is for you. It feels like we have the same goals but just don’t talk to each other, huh? Seems that if we came together to coordinate our efforts on campus we could do better work, right?

Join your fellow activists in a dialogue to identify shared goals and determine ways to collaborate throughout the year.

This event is going to be big. Delicious dessert will be served and brilliant brainstorming will happen. Don’t be the one stakeholder group on campus that misses out.  Fill out this quick Google Form right now to sign up.

Brought to you by Kate Cullen ’16, Dwight Greene Intern for Diversity and Community Engagement. Inquire at saltemuscull(at)wesleyan(dot)edu with questions.
