During this semester, you will also record your own podcast episode. You can either work alone or in a pair – your choice. The episode should have 40–50 minutes, half of it will be your discussion of the selected topic and the other half your interview with a foreign scholar or expert of your choice. I will provide you with a list of possible topics, but you are welcome to come up with your own: we will discuss them regularly on Moodle. Each of you should have a topic and an interviewee selected by week 5. You will submit the podcast outline/script by week 10 and the final podcast by January 15th. In addition to your own work, you will also provide feedback on the podcast outline of your classmates by week 11 (at least two detailed feedbacks!). We will upload the final podcast episodes on our YouTube channel, to be publicly accessed by anyone.
