Every semester, students in SPA 105 create and produce a podcast for their semester project. These podcasts are stories or radio-chronicles in Spanish which relate to one of the four main topics of the course: language, identity, colonialism and globalization. The project involves interviewing a Spanish-speaker in order to discover a fascinating story about the individual’s life and experiences.
At the end of the semester, students choose their favorite podcast in their section, then the instructors of the course choose the best produced podcast among them.
For the fall 2021 semester, the first prize went to Ovinabo Banerjee, Jules Regan, Luke Sotckless, and John Volver. They created a podcast called “Soy colombiana”, a story about navigating a dual identity and the challenges of stereotypes.
For the winners, our heartfelt congratulations for their dedication, effort, and great job!
