The ROYGBIV Diet

After a particularly colorful Thanksgiving feast, or was it a a drunken night at the bar (?), Independent Producer Amanda Thieroff and her friend Sean Berman challenged each other to embark on the ROYGBIV diet. This diet isn't about losing weight or being nutritious - it's about spending a week eating only one color of food per day, according to the colors of the rainbow.

Losing Her Sex Scene Virginity

E(Produced by LauraHerberg)Director's Choice!won Director's Choice in,our first-ever audio competition. Laura's story is about her friend Rachel Parsons, an aspiring actress who landed the lead role in a low-budget, independent film. The only drawback was that it required a sex scene in which she would have to be topless, something she wasn't sure she wanted to do. The role was too good to turn down, even though she worried it might jeapardize her relationship with her boyfriend.The story is told almost completely as verite. Rachel has been working on a narrated version of this story off and on for years. She thought theVerite + 1competition would allow her to experiment with a new approach; maybe shaking loose the producer's block and indecision she's been wrestling with. We think it worked.

Cold Concrete Birth by Kelley Libby

Producer Kelley Libby produced a radio story about 13 year-old farmer Colby Perron while at the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies. This is not that story. But if you listen to Colby's story, you will hear a very short scene in which a calf is born. Kelley spent all day, waiting on a cold concrete floor in a barn in Topsham, Maine, just to get the recording she needed for that scene. Later, she realized the tape she got told a separate story about waiting, pain, responsibility, knowledge and the beginning of life. We can't help but mention that this story would also fit into Big Shed's Audio Verite + 1 Competition if we hadn't given her some editorial help. But you should be inspired. If Kelley can record an audio verite story without even trying, surely you can too.

Celestial Navigation

Producer Tom Niemisto weaves between an interview with tall-ship captain Samantha Heyman and an astronomer/poet around a bonfire under a broad star-filled sky. The stars are governed by a perfect order and yet, they create a chaos of mystery. We link astronomy to creation myths in constellations. We search for deeper meaning the night sky or, with rigorous mathematics, we search for our physical location through navigation. This is Tom's first non-narrated audio work and, as with many radio stories, he sat on the great verite tape from the bonfire for two years before deciding to weave it with the tall-ship captains' voice. And... check this out... He scored the the music himself and performed it with his cello, seeking to "evoke the undulating horizon off a ship's deck, and the glint of stars trying to tell you something." We'd say he nailed it. The original version of this piece was commissioned by Julie Sabatier for Destination DIY on Oregon Public Broadcasting. It will be broadc...

This podcast features Laura in conversation with Big Shed curator Shea Shackelford, winding their way through many of the sounds and voices Laura used to create "The Soundscapes of Faith" series.
