IMAGINARY WORLDS IS A BI-WEEKLY PODCAST HOSTED BY ERIC MOLINSKY ABOUT SCI-FI AND OTHER FANTASY GENRES -- HOW WE CREATE THEM AND WHY WE SUSPEND OUR DISBELIEF.
This week, I pull the curtain back on my process and look at two public radio stories I reported back in 2008 ("Cal-Earth" and "Holy Viral Marketing Batman!") where I began to find my voice as a reporter, and realize that I wanted to have my own show. Along for ride is my former editor at Studio 360 and mentor for a decade: David Krasnow. We talk about what goes into making an audio feature, why I always need more "sign posting," and how hard it is to not sound like Ira Glass.
