Live Preview: Shape of the City

Wednesday, Nov 11

6:00 PM–7:30 PM

Live preview of the VPM podcast pilot for Shape of the City, produced by Lauren Francis. Dr. Chioke I’Anson will play selections from the pilot while making the case for this kind of production being possible at the Community Media Center.


The VPM + ICA Community Media Center will be helmed by Dr. Chioke I’Anson, Assistant Professor of African American Studies at VCU and underwriting announcer at NPR. As Director of Community Media, I’Anson will teach a podcasting seminar each semester for students in the Department of African American Studies and will work with a managing team comprised of VCU students to plan and create a series of community events and youth programs including podcasting and media classes, workshops on podcast development and critique, symposia with invited speakers and mentors, and live podcasting programs.
