Maureen McGuire participated in the 2023 Graduate Student Podcasting Institute hosted by the National Humanities Center and the Digital Humanities Center of San Diego State University from January 9-13, 2023. During the virtual institute, Maureen and fellow graduate students from across the United States learned more about producing a podcast. Participants of the institute also heard from Prof. Barry Lam, creator of Hi-Phi Nation, and Prof. Hannah MacGregor, co-creator of Witch, Please. By the end of the week, each group of participants produced their own 20-25 minute podcast episode. Please listen to some of the episodes at the link here.
Maureen was a member of a team of three other UC students who created a podcast episode in which they discussed their unique experiences during the 2022 graduate student strike. Maureen mixed and edited the podcast she and her colleagues created using Adobe Audition. She was very excited to include sounds recorded during the strike by UC Davis student Santiago Eslava-Bejarano.
