So you're a great writer, and you've pretty much got interviewing down, but something's just... missing. Sound. The sounds we use and how we use them can say so much in a radio story, but often that potential goes untapped.
Jonathan Mitchell discusses ways to expand your sonic vocabulary and how sound can be used to communicate ideas in a more immediate and meaningful way.
Jonathan Mitchell is the creator and producer of The Truth, a podcast that makes short films without pictures. He's contributed a wide range of pieces-documentaries, fictional stories, non-narrated sound collages, and original music- to all sorts of public radio programs, including Radiolab, Studio 360, This American Life, The Next Big Thing, and The Story. He also made the music and sound design for two episodes of Nova on PBS. Mitchell studied music composition at University of Illinois and Mills College. He lives with his wife and big fluffy cat in New York City.
