6:00 - 7:00 p.m.
We would like to introduce you to three audio-makers who are not scared of challenging stories and inconvenient topics. They give us an opportunity to get to know characters whose stories do not always receive the attention they deserve. During the session, will we discuss how to build a connection with the interviewees? How to work with vulnerable groups? How to avoid bias and not get too emotionally involved? How to keep boundaries while telling your own personal stories? Our guests are Emelie Rosén - investigative radio reporter at the Swedish Broadcasting; Sayre Quevedo - artist and journalist; Martyna Šulskutė - producer and editor of audio documentaries at NARA podcast.
