AWC announces student-led podcast "The Voice"

Episodes beginning Spring 2022

Yuma, AZ (November 18, 2021) – Starting Spring 2022, Arizona Western College students will begin making podcast episodes for “The Voice”: a new podcast created by the students, for the students, as part of The Western Voice.

Students registered for English 216 will be part of the inaugural episodes led by Dr. Trisha Campbell, AWC Professor of English, who has years of experience producing and editing sound. Each semester, a new cohort of students with new ideas and issues will research, write, interview, edit, and produce podcast episodes as part of their coursework in English 216. This course and podcast will teach students valuable skills like writing for the ear, developing a story for sound, scripting and recording, audio editing, production, and post-production.

“Recently, radio and radio voice has taken a turn toward authenticity, and a more varied, multilingual voice,” said Campbell. “We seek to speak into that opening as students of a largely Hispanic-serving institution; we speak with and without accents, with and without Spanish words, with and without the performative constraints of the podcasting voice from the early 1990s. We seek to voice our world differently and we invite you to experience and listen in on this world through our unique voices, perspectives, and worldviews.”
