Veteran Broadcaster Ross Reynolds Explores the Impact of Audio on Storytelling

Although we live in a visual world, audio still has the power to create intimacy and spark the imagination like no other medium can. Join us on October 8 as veteran broadcaster Ross Reynolds explores the impact that audio transmission has had on society and storytelling, beginning with the first century of radio up to the modern age of audiobooks, internet streaming, podcasts, and smart speakers. How has audio transmission changed society, and what makes it such a still-powerful form of communication?

Attendees will be encouraged to share stories of their formative audio experiences, and local radio broadcasters and podcasters will be invited to share their stories.

Mr. Reynolds is speaking courtesy of Humanities Washington.
