I honestly have noooo idea what to do for a radio show. I have never been interested in doing one, but I guess this is a way to really step out of my comfort zone. When I think of radio shows I think of gossip, and when I think of this course’s theme I think of Harry Potter. So, maybe we could do a theme talking about that. In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the students actually had a radio show that Ron listened to while they were on the run. It kept them up to date on the news of the ministry, and about who’s been recently killed by the death eaters. That’s one idea.
Another idea could just be each person of our group could tell their favorite story related to their theme, and also tell their background story of the character they’ve created and where are they now type of thing.
My idea for a radio show centered around our class theme would be a Superhero Bracket! So basically just like an NCAA Basketball bracket everyone participating in the show and people listening pick their winning superhero. They pick the superhero they believe is the number one best superhero of all time. Then you debate on who is correct. We can debate on their skills, weaknesses, resources, and everything in between until a winner prevails. I think this would be such an entertaining radio show because we could cover so many different superheros and the positives and negatives about them. It also lends itself to being a super interactive radio show because listeners can pick teams to join. Listeners can agree with one person’s top choice or can come up with a completely different perspective! There is so much flexibility here that could have something everyone would enjoy listening to!
