I thought this was an amazing podcast. The author did a great job writing this audio story. The way they used the audio techniques we learned about earlier this week really made the story come to life and helped the viewers feel like they are there. I was engaged the whole time when I was listening to this. The authors did a good job with layering the sounds throughout the whole story. They really made this story seem believable. If I didn’t know any better, I would have thought that these were actual recordings from when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the moon. The background music that they added a little after the 7:00 mark was very eerie and added suspense to the story. The use of the music throughout the recording really keeps the viewer interested and waiting to see what is going to happen next. Also, the sound effects, like the camera taking pictures and the astronauts putting their helmets on, added a lot more detail to the story. The author’s use of these techniques gave us great examples of how to incorporate them into our audio assignments this week. Also, I never knew that they wrote a speech for Richard Nixon to give just incase the mission failed. I really like how they used a real speech as the main topic of the story and then built around it with the astronaut voices and the music. I am really glad that this was one of the assignments for this week because I enjoyed listening and learning from this podcast.
