This American Graffiti

Moon Graffiti is an episode of a podcast based on a contingency speech Richard Nixon had prepared in the event the Apollo 11 mission failed. I listened to it, and comment on both the story and the audio techniques used to make the final product.

I also listened to an episode of This American Life, produced as journalism, but using a lot of the same techniques as Moon Graffiti’s fictitious story. There are three parts to the episode (prologue, Act I, Act II) and it was apparent that each was produced in a different way, or by different people, and that license I think really contributed to the overall feel of the episode – American life is a mixing bowl after all.
