The Proto-Terran Records
For a Wilson Scholars Project this semester, I took a look at the genre of podcast by creating my own podcast: The Proto-Terran Records – a sci-fi podcast following a scientist’s log reports about a series of humanoid specimens called proto-terrans. Beyond the quirks and eccentricities, the series is a format for looking at early literature such as The Tempest and Gulliver’s Travels, through a sci-fi lens (what some call “proto-science fiction”) while also giving a practical example of the literary theories being discussed by mirroring the concepts within the world of the podcast. This sci-fi podcast is a casual, fun format that communicates theories and ideas that may be new to the audience – analyzing early literature as a precursor to science fiction. The project culminated in the creation of website, hosting all of the podcasts that I will be sharing on social media.
