Untouchable Podcast Introduction
For my final project, I created a series of mini podcast episodes based on topics and themes explored throughout the course. These podcast episodes begin a series that will focus on a writer and journalist named Emma, who grapples with personal trauma and complicated family relations while navigating unexpected news that the world's SRL (sea rise levels) are astronomical and will lead to future catastrophe. Additionally, she meets a group of scientists and shares the creative project of making a podcast to publicly share these findings, hopeful that there is a future of coexsiting with earths' new landscape. A close friend and marine biologist, Patrick, doesn't share the same aspirations as Emma, who is more concerned with new evidence that corporations have intentionally consumed more fossil fuels in order to erode glaciers for more trade route access. Patrick also discovers haunting signs of colonization in the deepest parts of the ocean that were believed to be untouched by humans. Ancient species were kept in cages to foster sea life that aided in human consumption. Now that all the stories are coming together, Emma must choose a side: leave earth with her father, the acting administrator of NASA who may already be planning a mass exodus of only the wealthiest individuals on the planet, or stay and share the devastating news which may bring instability and chaos across the planet.
