We’re back with another episode of the True Voice Media Podcast!
Jeff was out of town when we recorded this episode, so instead of our usual round table discussion on something current in social media, we’re bringing you two segments. The first is Jeff’s take on a recent article by Gary Vaynerchuk and the second is a conversation between Jessie, Caroline, and our intern Sam about his experience with True Voice Media. And as always we’ll end the show with what we’re obsessed with this week! Enjoy ya’ll.
This Week’s Obsessions:
This week’s picks all follow the theme of media we missed out on or haven’t had the chance to talk about yet.
- Caroline is obsessed with a podcast called S-Town. S-Town is a radio documentary from the makers of Serial and This American Life, in which, one of the show’s producers and narrator Brian Reed is invited by a man named John B. Mclemore to solve a murder in Woodstock, Alabama. In the seven episode series, the narrative takes an unexpected turn that definitely inspires doubt in the listeners and the host’s minds as to why they’re still listening, but the series, heavily inspired by novels, specifically the southern, gothic type, ultimately paints a vivid picture of this particular region and the lives of some of its residents.
- Jessie is obsessed with the novel The Girl on the Train. If you aren’t already familiar, The Girl on The Train is about a woman named Rachel who rides the commuter rail to London each day, when she begins to notice a seemingly perfect couple living on her old street: Jess and Jason as she calls them. As she rides each day, she notices the couple’s relationship changing, and Jess smooching another man. Finally, Rachel notices that Jess has disappeared all together, and she sets out to contact her husband in hopes to help find her.
- Sam is obsessed with Orange is the New Black. He just finished the first season! Boy, does he have a long journey to take through Litchfield. We can’t wait till he’s caught up!
