My name is Therese Cushing. I’m a senior at the University of Notre Dame majoring in English major with minors in Business Economics and Computing & Digital Technologies.
As part of an independent study, I’m producing the podcast Onwards & Backwards because I’m interested in audio as a timeless and intimate form of media. I’ve really enjoyed interviewing people I’m already close to and getting to know them even better – and I’ve been surprised to find that I don’t completely hate the sound of my own voice.
Going forward, I hope to hone my interviewing skills, record episodes with people I don’t know at all, improve my editing, and learn how to market the podcast.
