I wrote the other week about a series of six podcasts that i’m working on: they each explore a broad aspect of the Social Age, but with a punk perspective. In other words, they look at broadly what is happening, and consider it in terms of established, versus challenger, power, or emergent, vs dominant, narratives. Today, i’ve been recording Episode 3: ‘The Death of Democracy’, and i’ve included my recording notes below.
These are built to fail: i’m ok however they turn out, because they are a prototype of a new voice, and one of the things we do as Social Leaders is to continue to evolve our Storytelling skills.
There are two reasons for this: firstly, with the voice i already have, i know how to explore a subject, but my knowledge may also limit me and, secondly, with the voice i already have, i speak to a known audience, but a new voice may engage with a new one.
Or perhaps it will fail: it’s hard to move beyond your known voice, leaving you exposed. That’s half the fun of it: a claimed space to learn.
Production is taking a little longer than expected, but i hope to have the first episodes released in July.
