Jake's Podcast: Family and Identity

My goal for this podcast was to find the relationship between a family's upbringing and identity. I interviewed my mother Angela Allen on what she remembers about her family. I had already known that my mother had a rough relationship with her father and mother on different opinions. I also interviewed my mother on what her life was like when she was, briefly, shunned by her family when she came out as gay.
My experience with this project was, overall, good one. The interviewing went well, but I think in the next podcast project I have I will use a program other than Soundtrap for editing. From this project I learned that I need to improve on my interviewing skills, not in responding to questions but in sounding more engaged and asking more thought provoking questions. I also learned that it is not uncommon for people to create their own identity.
