I'm Katie Semro, and for the last 13 weeks I’ve been making the podcast Transmission Times using audio diaries from people around the world. I'm planning on creating a special episode featuring parents and soon-to-be-parents talking about their experiences of the pandemic. Would you be willing to add your voice to the project?
All you need to do is record your answers to the questions below on a smartphone and email them to me, or call 847-354-4163 and leave a voicemail. Deadline is July 10!
- Describe your best moment with your kids?
- What was your worst moment?
- What happened that you didn’t expect?
- What do you want to remember from this time?
When you record please include the date and where you live, including your name is optional. Apps like Voice Memos for iPhone and ARS - or similar - for android work well. Then email the recording to me at email@example.com — this can usually be done right from the app. Or call 847-354-4163 and leave your answers as a voicemail.
The recordings can be as long or short as you want. Typically people record for 2 -5 minutes. Don’t worry about mistakes I will edit these out, just speak from the heart.
I hope to collect a lot of responases and will fit as many as I can into the podcast. All of the replies will be saved in the Transmission Times Archive to document this time for future generations.
Thank you so much for participating in the project!
If you have any questions, technical or otherwise, please let me know!
