Fun Facts Research and Prep

Fun facts: Create a list of eight fun facts you have uncovered in your research so far. Why are these particular facts significant?

How do they challenge and expand our existing assumptions about communications technologies? What new or alternative perspective do they offer to our usual ways of thinking about this technology, and about history?

Scholarly support: Identify the sources of each of your facts. Provide a comprehensive reference list of at least six relevant scholarly sources. In your discussion, address how these sources inform your analysis: What relevant information do these sources contain about your topic’s historical record? How does this scholarship support your contention that these facts qualify as fun facts?

Engagement strategies: Find three relevant podcast examples and assess how they try to keep their audience interested. Which strategies stand out to you as especially engaging, and why? Are there moments you find less compelling? What approach(es) do you think will suit your personal style, and what other strategies do you have in mind for making your own podcast stand out?
