I learned a lot while making this podcast. I learned how to use garageband which wasn't always the easiest thing to do. I also learned the details of what happened to my aunt and uncle that day and everything in between.
My interview was a project I probably will admire forever. Not only did I get to understand my friend and her feelings better.But, I actually now understand how a person feels in society because of their sexuality. I have gained so much just from my friends perspective. My friend Bryanna allowed me to understand the emotional, religion, and family boundaries that were crossed, due to her sexuality. Now, some people will say they heard of the story about a gay person in society. Although, they may never get the chance to actually understand them emotionally or mentally.
That’s only because of a mental system set in people’s heads that tell them to retreat from people who like their own sex. The society has placed a radar that tells them that homosexuals are sinners,evil, or devils that “shouldn’t walk the earth”, but this interview told me that that same signal won’t tell me why the CAUSE of this has happened. Although, it will tell me how it EFFECTS what has happened.
This was inspired by things we have noticed teenagers care about. Teens LOVE music and like to challenge because its fun to have a winner in something so we incorporated those into our video. We hope you enjoy!! :)
Determination is a key to succeeding in life. Can determination push you to cross boundaries? In my podcast my mother, now 38 years old, Tylene Lane, will tell us her story on how crossed the boundaries from a girl/ child to a woman.
To cross a boundary is to do something to offend someone, or to do something that you know you aren’t supposed to do. Crossing boundaries for the most part only has negative effects, because it offends someone else. There could be good results for crossing a boundary for you because most of the time you cross them for a personal benefit. I didn’t really learn anything new but I discovered exactly how my mom felt about the situation and how the people around her reacted. No, garageband was really easy and fun to use. I agreed so I just made it a little more interesting and because I couldn’t get the interview from my grandma I had to add more from my mom. I felt a strength was editing it and getting to the point on how she crossed a boundary.

I think that I had some strong attributes in terms of producing this podcast due to my previous experience in digital video production, It was fairly easy for me to record good audio for this project.
The interviews were pretty relaxed since they were with other students like me. It was fun to learn about other peoples experiences and get to talk to them for this project.

The main story of my podcast is looking into the early life of my mom and how growing up in a white neighborhood affected her. I am telling the story of how she crossed the boundary of the racism and not letting it hold her back.Everyone knows that growing up can be a struggle in it selfs. But try growing up in the 70's in a predominantly white neighboorhood. How can someone deal with the small racist digs everyday, from not only students but teachers.
When talking to my I feel like I learned a lot about her. I have a new respect for what she went through. She crossed a lot of boundaries. She not only proved to the teacher that she could be successful in life. I am very proud of my mom getting past those boundaries.
Hi, I’m Molly Olshin and i’m here with my dad, Sam Olshin, i’m interviewing him about the time he crossed a difficult boundary, that a lot of people have to go through. What do you do when your parents encourage you to go down a certain career path, when you know in your heart you want to do something else? I decided to talk to my dad about this topic because of his life changing experience he had, becasue he knows what to do in this kind of situation.
When your parents enforce something you do not want to do it can get compliacted. In my dad, Sam Olshin’s case, he was really interested in art and design as a carrer, but his parents really wanted him to become a doctor, like the rest of his family. He talks about the complications he had choseing between his parents choice or his heart disere.
During this project, i learned a lot. I learned to be really careful with applications like garage band, aduacity etc. You never really know what what could happen with the progress that you’ve made. I had to redo my interview a few times, and had a lot of trouble editing. I also learned to wait last minute for any project becuase it takes patience to edit auto to make it perfect. I learn a lot about crossing boundries: Do what makes you happy, espically if the discision is going to effect your future. I did not know that much about my dad’s school life until this interview, so I learned new things about my dad. While interviewing my dad, i came across a few obsticles; not only my audio deleting, but also background noise and not being able to edit my audio easily. Giving yourself enough time to work is always extremly important. You do not want to feel rushed, becuase you want to be careful. Overall, I learn a lot doing this assignment in multiple topics.
