Writing in the Social Sciences: Creating a Podcast in the Style of "A Thousand Things to Talk About" (by Guillermo Rodríguez)

Project Published 8/21/18 Last updated on 5/29/19

In this project, students will first research a number of social science articles on an issue that is important to them. Then they will write a 500-word transcript to be developed into a podcast. A successful transcript and eventual podcast will:

  • Highlight a recent research finding in 500 words;
  • Adopt an engaging tone that entertains and informs;
  • Include a bibliography cited in APA style;
  • Be free from grammatical and mechanical errors.

Students will take on the role of a social science scholar, composing and recording a three to five-minute audio file for submission.
