All of the hosts and interviewers you’ll hear from for the rest of this season are Chapman students who have completed the Podcasting class, which is just one of the topics offered through the Center for Creative and Cultural Industries course: 304-Creative and Cultural Industries in Practice. In class, we focus on the relationship between theory and practice. This means that after discussions focused on the importance of podcasts in modern media, we go out and create our own podcasts. Students who had no podcasting experience or technical ability were able to contribute all of the segments to the Chapman Catalyst podcast, with the goal being that they will take this ‘hands-on’ experience and carry it over to the launching of their very own series.
In this very special episode of the Catalyst Podcast, Chapman students Haley Younkin and Natalie Walker sit down with Emma Wall to discuss Emma’s life as a dancer heading into her senior year at Chapman University. Through the interview we learn about Emma’s background in dance which started out at the tender age of three and how her path ultimately led to Chapman. Haley and Natalie are surprised to find out that although dancing is Emma’s passion and future, it’s not the only thing she’s doing each day. In order to get her degree, she also has to take all of the other classes everyone else needs to take, not to mention find time after class to do practice, choreograph, and maybe even relax a little. Which leads us to a poignant question that all creatives face, how does she balance all of that out? Listen along as Haley and Natalie find out!
