In the Spotlight: Audio Innovation
For several weeks, StateImpact New Hampshire’s Amanda Loder has been rolling out a steady stream of stories about how people in around her state are navigating today’s economy. The series, “Getting By, Getting Ahead,” is a mix of economic portraits and interesting stories about people in New Hampshire’s seven regions.
Last week, we went live with an interactive feature that brings all of these stories together and uses audio in a really interesting way. While Amanda was out interviewing, recording and photographing her subjects, she asked each of them five common questions. The interactive is built around the answers to those questions. The result is an audio experience that goes beyond the 3-minute radio profiles that aired on NHPR and allows users to choose their own path through the collected sound. We’ve also asked readers/listeners to submit their own answers to the five questions and included additional information and topic pages on each of the state’s regions.
