» Catalyst: A Creative Industries Podcast

CatalystFrom Chapman University in Orange County California, Catalyst gives listeners a chance to learn about the Creative and Cultural Industries in a variety of ways.  The first three seasons focused on conversations with individuals from a wide array of backgrounds who are working in CCI all over the globe. Hosted by Taryn Stroop and Shannon Halverson, these interviews were engineered to allow listeners to gain insight as to how CCI is influencing the public and private sector alike, and how local influences shape a region’s creative landscape. Catalyst’s fourth season saw a few changes that have allowed us to hear some new and exciting voices exploring different aspects of CCI. Season Four, Part One, features a special three-part series from Dr. Shira Klein, Associate Professor in the Department of History. The series is interesting because she is exploring themes from her new publication Italy’s Jews from Emancipation to Fascism in a podcast format. 

In the second half of Season Four we are featuring some of our own Chapman CCI students who have written, recorded and produced their own podcast segments exploring the Creative and Cultural Industries from their own perspective. We’ll hear from television writers, fashion designers, dancers, graphic artists, stuntmen, chefs, and so much more. Mr. Ryan Haley, who teaches the podcasting course through the Center for Creative and Cultural Industries here at the University will be your new series host, as he introduces and closes out each episode. It is however, all Chapman students who are the segment interviewers and producers that you’ll hear from for the rest of this season. These students of the Center for Creative and Cultural Industries course: 304-Creative and Cultural Industries in Practice-Podcasting, start by learning to focus on the relationship between theory and practice. This means that after discussions focused on the importance of podcasts in modern media, they go out and create their own podcasts. Students who had no podcasting experience or technical ability were able to contribute all of the segments to the Chapman Catalyst podcast, with the goal being that they will take this ‘hands-on’ experience and carry it over to the launching of their very own series. So, without further ado, we at Catalyst are happy to present Season Four, Part Two: Catalyst, A New Beginning.
