Scottish Youth Create “MPSix” Podcast Series

Dec 12th, 2006 | By | Category: Audio Podcasting, Citizen Media

MP Six logoSix new podcast series about six major Scottish cities — from the young adult perspective – are set to debut throughout this week.

The “MPsix” project was created by about three dozen youngsters from six Scottish cities, working together in scripting, performing and editing short audio guides to their home cities.

Adults who usually work as architects, artists, writers, musicians, and photographers conducted five-day workshops for youth in Glasgow, Aberdeen, Stirling, Edinburgh, Dundee and Inverness. At the workshops, the teens learned how to create their own audio postcards, museum tours, sightseeing guides, and other vignettes of life in their hometowns.

The aim of the workshops was to “give young Scots the skills to make their own” guides to the cities they live in. These podcasts offer a teenage perspective on life in each of the cities.

Workshop participants learned about digital recording, writing for audio, interview techniques, sound editing, architecture and the environment, as well as conducting research into key places to visit around the city. , a new media and web development agency, served as podcast director on the project.

    I heard the kids’ podcast about Aberdeen.
    Very nice, but way too short. They should talk more about the town and the rest of its attributes.
    Also, they left no spaces for feedback directly to them so you can’t ask them questions.
