First off, I want to wish everyone a very happy new year. This has been an excellent year for Chalk Talk Climbing Podcast and it is all because of you guys, our listeners! We have reached record downloads, gotten in contact with great new guests, and now, we’re venturing into creating narrative-style podcast episodes. So, I hope you all like it. Please let us know by emailing the podcast at Mail@CTclimbingpodcast.com or visit us on our Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram pages.
This year I decided I wanted to try something new with the podcast. This episode is a narrative-style podcast, similar to what you would find on NPR with shows like This American Life, RadioLab, Serial, or TED Radio Hour. This episode specifically was produced for a class I took this semester on Radio News Production. Therefore, there were some requirements for the episode that I would change in future episodes, but you get the point.
Either way, I hope you like it. I’d like to do more of these shows in the future for competitions, events like Outdoor Retailers, or mini-series specials. Let me know what you think!
