During the podcast-making challenge that took place from March 3rd to 5th, 2017, 16 short audio pieces were created using the ingredients fallout, augmented reality and childhood. The results were really inspiring. Most of them had never edited before, let alone produced a podcast. A few participants requested we not share their work online.
Below you'll find 12 podcasts. Please remember that the producers of these short podcasts own the copyright to their creations. If you are interested in airing the work in any way, please contact us and we'll reach out to the producers.
