Shameless Podcast Camp: Meet Heard Before
In the Fall of 2017, we put out a call to teen girls and trans/NB youth who were interested in joining our inaugural Podcast Camp – to learn together how to make rad podcasts and then, well, make them!
Led by our podcast producer Julia De Laurentiis Johnson, ten campers met each week for a month. They made friends, made jokes and made killer podcasts. AND NOW! We are very proud and pleased to start sharing the beautiful things they made in our series Camp Shameless: The Podcasts.
Here’s Nilani! And this is Heard Before. In their own words:
Hi folks! Name’s Nilani.
I’m from the GTA - but I’m a suburbanite, so it’s on you to guess where I’m from.
Alright - let’s talk about the podcast.
This project was inspired by using the resources available to you. Should you listen to the podcast, you’ll understand what I mean by that! I’m someone who is really fascinated by the act of collecting memories (regardless of its form). In particular interest to me are voice memos, and writing! Both forms do a great job at letting you leap back into time sans time warp pad (or the DeLorean DMC-12).
Writing and recording audio have allowed me to create the following for you. It is far from perfect, but it is work that I am proud to share. I hope it encourages other folks to record their significant folks in their lives. Trust me - it’s great fun and it’ll help you out with your memory.
