Jorge Caraballo, “How to Use Audio Storytelling to Cultivate a Community and Keep it Engaged”

Thursday, February 17 @ 5:00 pm 6:30 pm EST

This event is virtual and will be streamed live on Zoom (mit.zoom.us/j/96579656038) and recorded.


Podcasts are in a golden age and are being used to effectively communicate new ideas, tell compelling stories, and build highly participative communities. This presentation will explore the power of audio storytelling to connect individuals in engaged networks of collaboration. Jorge Caraballo (’22 Harvard Nieman Fellow) will draw from experience as the former Growth Editor at Radio Ambulante –Latin America’s most popular documentary podcast– and will highlight different ways in which storytelling can be the starting point of new collective identities.
