Tonight, the girls in my group and I had our very first meeting about our radio show! We are all very excited about it and had some great ideas ready to share upon getting to the meeting. We decided since we are a group of girls, to take normal “girl” video and radio topics, and fit it for the apocalypse.
Without giving too much away, we will be speaking as our characters for the radio show and have planned 3 segments. We will first have an intro, then go into a beauty and life hacks segment (Emily and Morgan’s segment), followed by an advice section where “listeners” can call in and ask for advice (Myself and Rachel’s segment), with our last segment being Elizabeth’s health and nutrition segment since her character is a doctor! This will be concluded with an ending, obviously.
We decided to keep the name simple and are calling the show Girls Guide (To the Apocalypse). Here is a promotional photo I created for it!:
I created the poster using Canva and I’m really proud! I used a pre-set and I think it turned out very well. I thought this layout was great because of the colors and because it gave me the opportunity to put in all of our names and the link to the DS106 radio.
We plan to get together after break to record, but this was a great start! We will be in touch over break via our group chat, but I think this is the only real update I will have until we get back from break and hit the recording studio.
I can already tell this is going to be my favorite assignment so far because it allows me to meet new people and get to know people on a more personal level instead of just behind a screen. I thrive on connections and communication and as wonderful as technology is, nothing beats talking in person. At least for me, that is.
Have a great break, readers! If you’ve made it this far, comment how you’re spending your break!
