Amazon Hall of Fame
CRWR 302: Writing for Podcast
For this group assignment, my colleagues and I decided to explore "Amazon Hall of Fame Reviewers," a section of the e-commerce site ranking users by the quantity and helpfulness of their reviews. We created this podcast with the intention of keeping it spontaneous and light-hearted, imagining what the reviewers would actually be like based on what they bought and reviewed. My role in the production process was to assist our main writer with scripting, to voice act in the podcast itself, and to design album artwork. I have included the Soundcloud description for our podcast below.
"Have you ever wondered what information people come across about you online, and what the think about you as a result? Have you ever put information about yourself on the internet with the intention of creating an online persona? Welcome to Amazon Hall of Fame, the place where people are ranked by the helpfulness of their Amazon reviews and we, a group of university students, judge those people based on their reviews. What you buy online says a lot about you, but how you review those products says even more. So just remember friends, if you buy something weird on the internet, we’re going to make a podcast about it."
