Welcomed By Design and Unwell Part 1

For this week's midseason break, we're sharing an episode from the delightful podcast Welcomed By Design, a show produced by students and faculty at the University of Pittsburgh! We'll have the second part of this conversation later in our break! ====== On this episode of Welcomed by Design, we listen back to Fall 2022’s Queer Horror Week, coordinated by Pitt’s Horror Studies Working Group. Members of our team got to panel with many cool creatives, including the wonderful, BBC award-winning team of Unwell, to talk about accessibility and identity in the world of audio dramas! With a topic like that, there’s obviously going to be far too much good conversation to have a mere hour of footage. So we’re releasing a two-part special (which, given its patchwork of event audio clips, a lá Frankenstein’s monster, is also thematically spooky in structure). In this part 1, we discuss accessible and inclusive production practices, on the “real life” side of things. We talked about everything from fun/snarky transcript comments to balancing the nature of scaring in horror with care in content warnings. Be sure to check out part 2 for even more conversation, this time on inclusive fictional practices. Open episode transcript (which we’ve annotated this episode, in honor of Unwell!)
