The first episode of this season’s Zeugma podcast, a project of UT’s Digital Writing and Research Lab, was released last week. The theme of this episode is “riffing.”
Beck Wise, episode producer, writes, “Riffing is an exercise in freedom… within bounds. We were inspired by the children’s collaborative writing game in which each kid writes a sentence of a story, then folds the page down so just a few words are visible and passes it on, leaving the next person to build on that fragment. When the story has gone the whole way round, each one is read aloud — and everyone revels in the (un)expected forks in the road. In the Zeugma version, each team member puts together a 3-minute segment in secret, then hands over the last 15 seconds to their teammate to inspire their own 3-minute segment: lather, rinse, repeat.”
