The Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum in collaboration with Pop Culture Studies and Project Narrative at The Ohio State University are thrilled to welcome renowned cartoonist, writer, educator, and now podcaster JESSICA ABEL to campus on Tuesday, September 15th.
Join us for an evening of discovery while Jessica discusses her comics career and latest work, OUT ON THE WIRE: THE STORYTELLING SECRETS OF THE NEW MASTERS OF RADIO.
Following Jessica’s talk will be a Q&A and book signing.
Have you ever wondered just how people like Ira Glass, Jad Abumrad, and Alex Blumberg really make their unforgettable stories? How they make them feel so urgently necessary? And if the story isn’t over when we arrive at our destination, what makes us spend those precious extra minutes sitting in our car or on a park bench listening to how things turn out, rather than arriving at our destination on time?
Have you ever wished you could learn their secrets?
OUT ON THE WIRE: THE STORYTELLING SECRETS OF THE NEW MASTERS OF RADIO is an investigation into the narrative techniques and ideas of the new generation of great American journalists/storytellers on the radio and podcasts. Inside, you’ll discover the nitty-gritty of how shows like THIS AMERICAN LIFE, RADIOLAB, SNAP JUDGEMENT, PLANET MONEY, the MOTH RADIO HOUR, RADIO DIARIES, and 99% INVISIBLE weave their magic spell.
