Telling Untold Stories
In this session, Morgan M Page (One From the Vaults) and Jason Reed (Stop and Search) will go through why and how they make their podcasts. Both shows focus on communities, histories and issues that don’t get widely (or well) represented in mainstream media. This session should be of interest to people involved in those issues and communities as well as to anyone thinking about how to explore and represent untold stories in an audio form.
One From the Vaults is a trans history podcast that brings you all the dirt, gossip, and glamour from trans history. Morgan M Page will be sharing the challenges and joys of making this podcast on both sides of the Atlantic. In the show she narrates researched history based essays, laced with archival footage, that showcase a trans history that is framed by, and centres, trans voices and perspectives.
Stop and Search is made by Jason Reed and aims to deconstruct our laws; take a look at many overlapping issues and ask ‘what’s really going on in society’? With a mix of live panel discussions, celebrity guests, policy experts, rolling news content, and general inquisitiveness, it tries to get to the bottom of our relationship with drugs. Stop and Search is created in association with LEAP UK and proudly part of Scroobius Pip’s Distraction Pieces Network. It won two British Podcast Awards in 2018.

Jason has written for The Independent, Vice, Virgin, inews, the BMJ, Politics.co.uk<http://politics.co.uk/>, and he’s appeared on the BBC and Channel 4.
