Partner Podcast Challenge
We consider our phones to be an integral part of our lives, some may even consider them an integral part of themselves. We decided to push the boundaries and test ourselves to see if we could reduce our phone usage for a week and monitored the effects it had on us.
We compare and contrast the opinions shown in these articles: Teens Would Rather Text Their Friends Than Talk to them in Person, The Surprising, Research-Backed Benefits of Active Screen Time, and 16 Things Everybody Should Stop Doing In Order To Be Successful to our experience and tried to form links to what we’ve experienced.
A lot of pre-planning was done for our podcast, first, we had to plan our recordings and devise an intro and outro to kick off the project. This process can be found on the planning doc, the final podcast had the intro which I made, and the outro of my partner. Intro/Outro/Planner
To get a better sense of the dynamics of a podcast and the flow of thoughts put into a podcast listening to a podcast was a quintessential part of the project. The podcast I reviewed was called “Freakonomics-Think Like a Winner”. Not only was it immensely interesting and inspiring but it also gave me a good sense of what a podcast should contain and outlined some ideas which I could implement in my own.
Finally to kick off the process my partner and I had a conversation ensuring that we were both well versed with the steps that will be taken for the process. We made a recording and also used the information we garnered from the personality tests. This helped us to better understand our attitude towards work and how we respond to situations.
