Terrestrials: Uncovering the strangeness of storytelling for kids
Together with Terrestrials senior producer Ana Gonzalez, we will take a look behind the scenes of the pilot season of the first Radiolab for Kids’s spinoff. Ana will delve into Terrestrials‘ multifaceted venture into the uncovering of the strangeness right here on Earth: from selecting the stories to the editorial work, from the scientific committee made up of professionals, experts and child listeners, to the production of music videos about bald eagles and cockroach milk. Because the world of children’s audio can (and should) be weird!
