Imitating the Conventions of a Podcast:
The Podcast project is an IMITATION project, which means you’re going to analyze some podcasts and focus on how, in general, a podcast is put together–then your group will imitate that when you create your own podcast. All podcasts have similar conventions–elements that we expect once we know it’s a podcast–as you listen to the podcast you’ve chosen, annotate not only for content, but also for the podcast conventions that you and your group might imitate in your own work. For example:
Is there a main host who facilitates all the conversations, asking questions and then chatting with guests, or is it more like a group of people all just talking about the same topic?
How does it start?
How are the speakers introduced?
How long does each speaker talk about something before another speaker comes into the conversation?
How much time is spend in back-and-forth conversation?
Are there segments, or obvious breaks, between different sub-topics discussed in the podcast?
How does the discussion move from one topic to the next?
Is there music used, and how?
Does Disney Still Have a Princess Problem?
Hourgasm: Gender in Disney Films
Captain America: Civil War and Gender Bias in Films
The Changing Face of Fandom: The Women of Marvel
Hollywood Remixed: (Not) Everybody was Kung Fu Fighting, with Simu Liu
Beyond Shang-Chi: Superheroes, Masculinity, and Asian American Representation
Begin your annotations with a header–the full title of the podcast.
When you listen, focus on BOTH—-CONTENT:
Important ideas (main ideas and subtopics)
Evidence and development used in order to get the point across–Interesting stories, statistics, or quotes.
How is the podcast put together? How is it organized? How does it move from one segment to the next–are there transitions?
How does it start? Is there intro music? Does someone introduce the topic? How long is that intro? How are the speakers introduced?
How do the speakers interact–how long does each speaker talk?
Do speakers build on what the others say, do they disagree, how often does the host interject?
Do they address the audience? Are there questions taken from the audience?
How does it end? How do they make the conversation come to a satisfying conclusion? Are there credits? Music?
Make at least TEN (10) timestamp/summary annotations for the podcast as you are listening. Here is a formula to follow for your annotations:
Identify the timestamp of what you’re making notes about.
Write 1-2 sentences to summarize what is being discussed at that time stamp, and if the annotation is about content, include a quotation somewhere in your summary. Look for quotations that you might want to use in your own podcast script–remember, this podcast can be one of your sources.
Cover both Content and Conventions (see #4 above); Of your 10 annotations, make sure that some have to do with the content and some have to do with the conventions of the podcast
3. After the 10 timestamp/summary annotations, write a paragraph (6-8 sentences) that:
Describes the podcast (give all the details: date, title and speakers);
Summarizes the most important ideas discussed;
Summarizes some of the conventions of the podcast that you think your group might
want to follow;
Make suggestions to your group members–are there topics discussed that you think should be included in your group’s project?
which elements in this podcast should your group use as models for your own project?
Is the podcast so good in terms of how it discusses your group’s topic that they should take time to listen to it too as part of their own research for the project?
10 timestamp summary annotations with 1-2 well-developed sentences that cover both content and conventions
A summary paragraph (6-8 sentences) with content as described above.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
