episode 4: the lift

Going up or down?

Episode 4, THE LIFT, is available here or click the “episodes” tab. Elevators are strange spaces. Most of us take them on a daily basis, whether it’s at work, in our apartments or inside a store. They’re one of the few spots where you have enclosed interactions with people you probably never would have spoken to otherwise. In this show, we’ll explore more of the weird relationship between people and elevators, and the things that happen when you decide not to take the stairs.

Episode 3, GOING THE DISTANCE, is now available here or click the ‘episodes’ tab.
We experience all kinds of distances in college. Of course, there’s the physical distance of being away from home, whether you’re 20 minutes or 2,000 miles away. It can test your emotions, too, to be away from the people you love. There are also the types of distances that can test your body. In this episode, we’ll explore both the literal and metaphorical distance. We hope you’ll come along for the ride.

episode 2: double take

Episode 2 contains a story about the Neptune Theater. (Not this Neptune.)

Episode 2, DOUBLE TAKE, is now available!

Our daily lives are filled with double takes. They’re the things that make you look twice or think twice about something or someone. We all do it: We judge and misjudge others without getting to know them. We pass the same people, places, things, and never stop to take a second glance. This show is about those second glances—where we stop judging a book by its cover and actually read the book.

Click here or go to the “episodes” tab. Thanks for listening!

waiting in line for ‘harry potter’

"Harry Potter and the Eathly Allows" -- just missing a D and an H.

For our upcoming episode “Double Take,” contributor Olivia De Recat is working on a story about the clever marquees outside the University District’s Neptune Theater. While theater staff changed the marquee to announce the release of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1” last night, Olivia and producer Rachel Solomon talked to Potter fans waiting in line to be first to see the film at midnight. Here’s what they had to say.

This also aired on KUOW’s The Conversation.
