New HowSound: Nancy Was Here
(November 25, 2020)


In this week’s HowSound, host Rob Rosenthal honors the work of two of his former students from the Transom Story Workshop, Kathy Tu and Tobin Low.

Since 2017, they’ve co-hosted Nancy, a podcast about the LGBTQ experience. Sadly, WNYC has decided to cancel the show. Rob talks about the importance of their work and talks with Kathy and Tobin about their time with Nancy.

Produced in collaboration with the Public Radio Exchange, HowSound delves into the ins-and-outs of radio storytelling in conversations about everything from fieldwork and recording techniques to narrative and ethics.

Each episode highlights the work of producers such as Sruthi Pinnameneni, Noel King, Leila Day, John Burnett, David Isay, and Susan Stamberg, as well as emerging producers from podcasts and local NPR stations around the country, and participants in various Transom Workshops.

Host Rob Rosenthal launched and directed the radio program at the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies for eleven years. He’s an audio guy through and through, producing documentaries, features, multi-media, audio tours, sound art, podcasts, commercials, and public service announcements as a freelancer.

Since the fall of 2011, Rob has been the lead instructor of the Transom Story Workshop, teaching eight-week workshops twice a year in Woods Hole, as well as weeklong workshops around the country.
