When I was thinking about potential topics of my podcast, I decided that it would have to be something that I first and foremost, enjoyed. If I was going to talk about a topic for fifteen minutes, it should probably be something I like. In addition to this, I tried to think of topics that would allow me to add in appropriate sounds and other auditory elements to make my podcast dynamic. That’s the main point I took from listening to “Slow”; the ability to layer and mix sounds throughout the entire podcast makes a podcast far more interesting, and I felt as though it would hold my listener’s attention. So after doing some brainstorming, I decided that my podcast is going to be about my hometown’s culture: the beach, and more specifically, surfing. Sometimes I forget that living on a barrier island on the Jersey Shore is an experience that many don’t get to have, and surfing is usually a completely foreign concept to everyone who doesn’t do it. I think that layering the different sounds of the beach and ocean will make my podcast interesting, and create the dynamism I mentioned previously. My overall aim with the podcast is to give a glimpse into what its like to live in “America’s Greatest Family Resort”–and what it’s really made up of when the tourists leave after labor day: a close-knit community of surfers.
