Catalyst is a Creative Industries podcast, from Chapman University. Each episode features Chapman students who have completed a Podcasting course through the Center for Creative and Cultural Industries at the university. Students who had no podcasting experience or technical ability in the genre before taking the course were able to contribute all the segments to Catalyst this season with the goal being that they will take this ‘hands-on’ experience and carry it over to the launching of their very own series. Each episode of Season 10 will feature one to two different interviews conducted by CCI students, exploring different aspects of the Creative and Cultural Industries.
This week our first guest is experienced broadcast journalist from San Francisco, Jerry Kay who speaks with Angie Cox-Parra about his more than 30 year career in radio. Jerry explains how he has been able to align the creative practices of radio shows and podcasts with science by illuminating how editing and purpose are significant components of his creative process. They discuss how the main drive for his radio shows is curiosity, and how his need to continuously learn more had influenced the content that he has created over the course of his career.
