Podcast Brief

Make a micro-podcast (audio only) on a green success story. You will base your podcast on a contemporary story with an optimistic green message, although you will not avoid the tough realities/context of the situation. There are links to a couple of green success suggestions below, but it would be great if you research your own story.

Remember to pay attention to audio quality – easier to avoid clicks as you record than to edit them out later. BUT the focus is on the creativity of the podcast, excellent writing, energized performance, clear, concise, tight and interesting ideas.
