A few weeks back, I asked several coworkers, friends, and former classmates if anyone would be interested in interviewing for my project. I told them that the official project would be a 3-minute audio story.
For those interested, here is the original for comparison:
I collected over 4 hours of raw audio. It turns out when you ask to interview people about a niche topic like “disability employment in public accounting,” they have a lot to say. And what they said deserved to be heard. I work in public accounting, and I am heavily involved with my company’s Disability Business Resource Group. So it means a great deal to me to be able to elevate others’ voices.
I created this project mainly from scratch on Adobe Audition. Although I had already done one audio project, I had to recut, reorganize, and re-edit everything in this podcast. It was a Herculean effort, and I hope to revisit this project in the future and add more content. I have a lot more to say about this topic.
My dream would be to share this podcast in two places: first, with college students considering their options for future majors/employment. Second, I would like to share it with my coworkers, who may not be fully cognizant of the struggles endured by disabled accountants in their field. I hope this podcast is illuminating.
Note: There are two tracks featured in this podcast by the artist “Ikson,” who allows for free usage of his music for proper credit. I’ve included links to the songs used below.
